Illuminate Adelaide: In Depth
Illuminate Adelaide: In Depth will be lighting up the Renmark riverbank from 3 June – 2 July 2022.
In Depth is a large-scale multimedia event responsive to the Murray river, its history and the community of Renmark. Projection, sound and lighting transform the river and banks after dark as the local habitat is transformed to celebrate one of the river’s oldest residents.
A collaboration between Craig Walsh, local artists and community members, this project draws people to the river’s edge to experience an unexpected encounter, rich in history and an experience sure to evoke new stories and mythologies related to this time and place.
The central riverbank precinct adjacent to the Renmark Club will come to life after dark with an array of projections, story and sound and a chance to witness the arrival of some mysterious inhabitants from the deep. This is a FREE family friendly event.
