In celebration of our 50 year anniversary, the Adelaide Festival Centre Foundation has commissioned five graduates of South Australia’s best art school Adelaide Central School of Art to create a unique suite of commemorative artworks.

Each of these talented artists were inspired by our flagship festivals and programming. Featuring Jake Yang inspired by OzAsia Festival, Nicholas Hanisch matched with Adelaide Guitar Festival, Charlotte Tatton paired with Adelaide Cabaret Festival, Alex Beckinsale and young artist Mei Lim working collaboratively on a DreamBIG Children’s Festival artwork, and Ngarrindjeri artist Thomas Readett represented our First Nations programming.

The artworks respond to the past 50 years and recognise the great possibilities for the future.
