Hawdown Chambers on Barwell Avenue Barmera were the first offices of the then Barmera Council.
Most recently Hawdon Chambers have been vacant since Riverland Youth Theatre moved their offices from Hawdon Chambers to the Renmark Institute in 2005.
Hawdon Chambers sit above the Soldiers Memorial Hall and are part of the Bonney Theatre Complex.
Hawdon Chambers is a council owned venue and Part of Things have a community lease until December 2020. The lease was secured through an open public expression of interest process.
Hawdon Chambers has been renovated in 2018 but is still an old building and only accessible via steps from the street and a single set of stairs internally (the space is on the second floor). Part of Things will be exploring ways of using technology and other ideas to rethink participation, collaboration and audience for anyone that is unable to access Hawdon Chambers physically. We welcome creative suggestions.
