The Barossa Valley is primarily known as an acclaimed wine region, with most of its tourism focused on gourmet food and wine experiences. However, the region is home to a host of creative people from a range of backgrounds and disciplines. ArtsHub takes an in-depth look at some of the community-led organisations in the Barossa region that are elevating the local arts community. Specifically, the 100 Barossa Artists Project (100BA) and the Barossa’s community radio station, BBBfm 89.1.
The 100 Barossa Artists (100BA) project began when Kirsty Kingsley, Renee De Saxe and Rebecca Reynolds noticed there weren’t many spaces in the Barossa dedicated to showcasing local artists.
