Manifold Portrait

With Adrian Little, Lorraine Marter, Terry Marter, Caroline Reid, Nic Tubb and Jessica Weidenhofer.

Beginning in 2015, Manifold Portrait is a conversation between professional artists and the community living around Rotary Park in Manifold Crescent, Berri. It’s a conversation exploring local stories of place, resilience, hope, connection and frustration through the creation of artistic ‘things’. Songs. Poems. Theatre. Photographs. Film. Projection. Sculptures. Moments. Experiences.

Riverland writer and theatre-maker Alysha Herrmann will be spending time creating in Rotary Park on the first Sunday of every month in 2015 and nurturing opportunities for local and visiting artists to join the conversation in July and September.

Community currently residing near Rotary Park will be continually offered opportunities to collaborate in ideating, making and testing. Everyone else is invited to share their memories and experiences of Rotary Park using #manifoldportrait or contacting Alysha at

Anyone and everyone is invited along to join the community of Manifold Portrait as the sun goes down on Sunday 6th September for an informal evening of art, food, conversation and questions in Rotary Park. Artists and collaborating residents will be sharing insights into the process and the ‘things’ they’ve created together during Manifold Portrait in 2015, along with some of the ideas and dreams that might (or might not) develop in 2016.


Alysha was the recipient of the Australia Council 2015 Kirk Robson Award which recognises outstanding leadership from young people working in community arts and cultural development, particularly in reconciliation and social justice.

Alysha is contributing a percentage of the award towards the development of Manifold Portrait in 2015 and would like to thank the Australia Council and the family of Kirk Robson for their support.
