Part of Things is a space to bring new ideas to life. It is an experimental gathering place inspired by DIY culture, contemporary & experimental art, entrepreneurial thinking, community service and a ferocious pursuit of “how could this be better?”
Our vision is that when people think of the Riverland, they think quirky and creative experiences in the same way that when people think of Melbourne, they think of fancy coffee. Our mission is to nurture a creative and connected generation of doers in the Riverland region of South Australia. We organise projects, events, gatherings, meetings, workshops, mentoring and everything in between to achieve this mission. We present quirky, unique and memorable experiences created and curated by Riverland artists and thinkers: audio walking tours, immersive theatre, collaborative writing projects, video game jams, intimate concerts and creative based workshop tasters.
Part of Things is the only hub in the Riverland dedicated to (for, with, by) the generation currently in their 20s and 30s. Our space and programming reflects the specific tastes, interests and aspirations of Riverlanders looking for weird, wonderful and quirky experiences. We operate from Hawdon Chambers on the main-street of Barmera and make our space available for hire, as well as offering co-working desks.
Part of Things is a small business embracing self-help, self-responsibility, collaboration, curiosity, courage and creativity. Our programming is variously-scaled, responsive to identified needs and interests, and always evolving. We close up programming over the hot Riverland summer and kick back into gear over March – November. We are unashamedly focused on Riverland tastes, interests, ideas and futures in everything we do, and we love working with allies, champions and collaborators from other communities for shared benefit.
Part of Things was founded in 2019 by award winning Riverland writer, creative producer and community organiser Alysha Herrmann, with practical and moral support from Nic Tubb, Ella Winnall, Brianna Obst, Shay Leach and other Riverland champions.
