Illuminate Adelaide set to light up winter in 2021

07 Sep 2020


A new annual winter event will take over Adelaide's city streets, laneways and buildings from July 2021 with light, art installations, immersive technology, music, performance, discussions and ideas.

Illuminate Adelaide will run over two weeks and three weekends during the traditionally quieter winter months. An event of global significance and distinctively South Australian, Illuminate Adelaide will present a new event concept which celebrates the union between future technology and creative industries.

A program of free and ticketed events for all ages, Illuminate Adelaide will present projects exclusive to Adelaide, enticing visitors from across South Australia as well as interstate and overseas.

Rachael Azzopardi and Lee Cumberlidge join forces as Co-Founders and Creative Directors of Illuminate Adelaide, working in collaboration with cultural, academic and science institutions. Local, national and international makers and artists will be featured throughout.

"Here in South Australia, there is so much extraordinary work happening and so many talented and incredible innovators in the areas of future technologies, arts and creative industries," said Rachael Azzopardi and Lee Cumberlidge.

"After attaining support from the government in May, we have been building a team of dedicated individuals who have already started working on the crucial aspects of the inaugural 2021 event, we are really excited to announce initial programming elements later in the year.

"Illuminate Adelaide, with the support of the State Government, will provide a platform and vital new opportunities to bring these sectors together and showcase them in a collaborative celebration for all South Australians and visitors to the state."

Illuminate aims to serve as an opportunity to unify existing winter events and activations.

The first programme announcement will be made in early 2021.
