There are so many ways students can be involved in the festival city, from volunteering to contributing as an artist!
Study Festival Management in Adelaide
Festivals Adelaide has partnered with the University of South Australia to co-deliver a Bachelor of Creative Industries with a Major in Festivals Management. This three-year degree connects you with industry from day one, giving you the knowledge, skills and networks needed to become a professional, adaptable and creatively focused operator with multidisciplinary skills. Those taking part in this unique major will learn about the cultural and economic impacts of festivals locally and globally and participate in an immersive placement experience during their studies.
Together, UniSA and Festivals Adelaide are developing and building up the next generation of movers and thinkers, those who will continue co-create festivals in our city together, inspiring new ideas, ventures and connections.
Adelaide is home to numerous open access festivals, in which everyone is highly encouraged to participate as an artist or presenter. There is no better place to test out a creative idea, team up with your friends to present a group production, or share your unique passion for arts and culture!
Each open access festival does things a little differently, but the festival coordinators and teams are extremely helpful, ready to support you in your every endeavour.
Go solo, join the fun with friends, or get involved with a local venue or organisation. Find out more about all the possibilities on the following sites:
