The tour explores the stories behind Adelaide’s alleged hauntings and crimes, while shedding light on some our city’s more chilling history. The tour is a collaboration between paranormal investigator Allen Tiller, sound recordist Anthony Frith, and Adelaide City Libraries. It was designed and developed based on research from Allen’s history residency at the libraries in 2016, along with a range of ghost stories brought forward via public consultation sessions.

Creative Abilities is an exhibition of artworks that showcase the talent of adults and children with disabilities from Adelaide and surrounding areas. Convened by the Australian Red Cross and in partnership with the City of Adelaide, the exhibition aims to raise awareness, challenge perceptions and reduce stigma surrounding both physical and mental health, whilst also addressing accessibility within the visual arts. The artists share the belief that art can and should serve as a catalyst for inclusion and acceptance.
Using the canvas of the human anatomy, explore how to personify and more genuinely connect with the most immediate part of our lives, our bodies. Pulling our focus and vision inwards, towards ourselves, and away from the cacophony of external, larger lens of global news and information. Using the personal stories and relationships we have with our own bodies, and pre-existing text from medical books, advertisement, and other media to creatively spark another way of thinking.

June’s focus is the Short Story. This can be flash fiction, the novellette or any written piece from 3 words to approx. 20,000. Let’s talk about how shorter works are different from a storyline point of view and also what you need to include and what you might possibly leave out.
Can a nation have a brand much like a can of soup? What is a nation’s brand in the first place? And what’s art got to do with it? As it turns out, it might be plenty.
