Make Something great

Discovery Workshops

Discover Something New!

Steph Ball, Owner Ballara Art & Lifestyle Retreat and Jasmine Swales, Discovery Workshop Program Manager

About the Discovery for Recovery Program

Discovery for Recovery was developed in 2020 by the SYP Arts Development group to help support regional communities on Southern Yorke Peninsula by providing opportunities for social connection, local economic growth and cultural development though the arts.

Arts workshops are available for community members and visitors to Southern Yorke Peninsula to discover new skills and try something different.  New events are always being added.

Over 20 artists have been employed and some provided with valuable mentoring and skill development opportunities as part of this initiative.

Bookings are available online at www.discoveryworkshops.com.au or by contacting Jasmine Swales, Discovery Workshops Project Manager at jasmine@studiosurf.com.au.

Proudly supported by Country Arts SA through the Regional Arts Fund.

Workshop Location: Ballara Art & Lifestyle Retreat
