In the spirit of celebration and collaboration, Adelaide Festival Centre has commissioned a special set of brooch designs by local artists, in commemoration of Adelaide Festival Centre’s 50th Anniversary. 

The brooches, which are now available to purchase from Adelaide Festival Centre's Shop online, have been skillfully designed and created by artists from Adelaide’s JamFactory, and mark a special anniversary for both arts organisations, with JamFactory also celebrating their half century in 2023.

The brooch designs were created by JamFactory jewelry designers Kath Inglis and Danielle Barrie with one brooch representing the iconic white shells of Adelaide Festival Centre, and the other represents the colour and movement of the performers that grace our stages. The two designs are limited editions - one is made of sterling silver and the other a mix of silver and titanium.  

In addition to the brooches, other items available for sale in Adelaide Festival Centre’s 50th year include a 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle, a travel mug, and an apron featuring a design of the Riverbank Precinct.  A commemorative coffee table book The Adelaide Festival Centre: Celebrating 50 years will also be available for sale from the 2nd of June.
