Pricing: Free!

Location: Beltana House Studios, 364 Carrington Street

Presenters: Sarah Feijen, CEO Guildhouse; Bridget Alfred, CEO SALA; Chelsea Nicholls, Program Coordinator SALA; Cheryl Bridgart, artist 

We are thrilled to invite the team from SALA Festival to share the ins and outs of registering to be part of the festival, the benefits of registration, awards and opportunities, handy tips and tricks, and an introduction to the Shop SALA platform for artists. 

The South Australian Living Artists (SALA) Festival is a statewide festival of visual art. The SALA Festival was established in 1998 to promote and celebrate the many talented visual artists in South Australia. The aim was -and remains- to extend visual arts audiences, and as an umbrella organisation, the festival has continued a policy of inclusiveness allowing all South Australian visual artists of any level and working in any medium to be part of the annual SALA Festival every August.

Our host, textile artist Cheryl Bridgart, will provide a unique perspective on her experience of SALA Festival as 2024 marks her 16th consecutive year of participating in the festival! 

There will be a Q+A so if you have any specific questions for Bridget, Chelsea or Cheryl, please add them to your booking registration and we will do our best to get them answered (note, questions received after 20/3 may not be considered). 

After presentations we will conclude the evening with casual networking drinks where you will have the opportunity to mingle with other artists, create new connections and expand your community. We look forward to seeing you!
