Vision The Barossa Arts and Convention Centre plays a pivotal role in the performing arts and creativity in the region.
Mission To enhance community wellbeing through access to and participation in the creativity and performing arts.
The Barossa Arts and Convention Centre is a business enterprise of Faith Lutheran College. Faith Lutheran College, formerly Faith Lutheran Secondary School, was established in 1985.
In 1996 the school built the facility now known as the Barossa Arts and Convention centre which serves the school as a Chapel, a classroom and a performing arts venue, accommodating all major school events such as the annual Valedictory service, bi-annual musicals and parent forums. For the community the venue also provides a multipurpose facility which is used for performances, rehearsals, chapel services, conventions, meetings and other special events.
The Barossa Arts and Convention Centre comprises;
• The Brenton Langbein Theatre with raked seating for 985.
• The Eckermann Theatre designed for experimental theatre, with a flat floor allowing flexible use
• Foyers available for functions, exhibitions, dinners and events
• Dance Studio
• Associated facilities eg spacious dressing rooms and Green Room, excellent technical capabilities
The Brenton Langbein Theatre was named to commemorate the late Brenton Langbein A.O., internationally acclaimed violinist, conductor and co-founder of the International Barossa Music Festival.
The Eckermann Theatre was named after the founding Principal of Faith Lutheran Secondary School, Brian Eckermann who was Principal 1985 - 2006
The Barossa arts and Convention Centre has become a centre for learning through the Arts. The facility allows students to work and perform in a semi-professional environment: it gives students, staff parents and families amazing performing arts opportunities to engage in: programming has a clear focus on providing students in our region access to excellent works and art workers. These arts opportunities do provide learning experiences which complement existing learning through the curriculum.
