The inaugural issue of Aspire South Australia magazine has an article on Hart's Mill that features interviews with two passionate members of our alliance, it's a great read. Aspire South Australia is an independent, glossy magazine distributed free throughout metro-SA. "We celebrate all-things South Australian. We care about culture, community and a damn good yarn. We embrace the weird and are more interested in what goes on in local communities, laneways and over the back fence than celebrity." Thanks to Sky Harrison from Aspire.
We were saddened to see the historic Albion Flour Mill in Brisbane recently destroyed by fire, a result of a senseless arson attack. We can't let that happen to the Hart's Mill Precinct so the sooner it can be given a new life the better. Maybe it's time for the Premier to follow through on his promise and instigate an international design competition that will lead to a future for the Mills. How about it Mr Premier?
Please consider making a pledge via Pozible which will enable the clever people at Illuminart to build on the amazing large scale projected work shown at the 2009 Port Festival. 'Hart's Mill Re-Animated' will be presented in March 2014.
The long awaited transformation of the Hart's Mill precinct is beginning.
Aspect Studios, in collaboration with Mulloway Studios (headed up by locals Anthony Coupe and Felicity Sando), have finished the detail design work for the area surrounding the Hart's Mill buildings and work has recently got underway. Woohoo :)
The updated concept
St Jerome's Laneway Festival will be coming to the Port and the Hart's Mill Precinct on Friday the 7th of February. It will great to see the precinct used as a backdrop for this prestigious national music festival, hopefully bringing a whole new audience to experience the Mills. It's unfortunate that the buildings won't be accessible but it's a start.
