In Depth has been postponed until 2022.
Illuminate Adelaide and the South Australian Tourism Commission (SATC) have had to make the decision to postpone the third regional activation of Illuminate Adelaide.
Due to the volatile situation in NSW and that state’s extended lockdown, the artist is unable to travel to SA for the planned 17 September start date.
Illuminate Adelaide and the SATC are absolutely committed to delivering In Depth in Renmark, following extensive collaborative work and strong engagement of local artists and community and look forward to seeing it light up the riverfront in 2022.
Illuminate Adelaide and the Government of South Australia, through the South Australian Tourism Commission, are partnering with innovative regional councils and award-winning artists to shine a light on South Australia.
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 with an array of projections, story and sound and a chance to witness the arrival of some mysterious inhabitants from the deep.
