InReview and LIGHT  have joined forces to present a series of provocative forums on the future of the arts in South Australia. We began with the key question of funding and now we’re turning our attention to infrastructure – theatres and other performance spaces, as well as places for people to learn and engage with the arts.

Join our expert panel at LIGHT’s The Lab on Light Square for a discussion of all the issues. The event, from 5.30pm on September 14, is free but bookings are essential.

Adelaide sees itself as the nation’s festival city, but do we have the infrastructure to support and grow this claim? Why are we the only major city without a concert hall? Why have we lost theatre spaces over the past few decades? How do we balance the sometimes competing demands of our major companies? What role do private organisations and investors have to play?

InReview’s David Washington will unpack the issues with an expert panel including outgoing Adelaide Festival director Rachel Healy, UKARIA CEO Alison Beare, and University of Adelaide researcher Luke Harrald.

There will be plenty of time for questions from the audience and the event will be recorded by InReview for release as a podcast.

You can also make a night of it and pre-order a cheese platter to collect prior to the show, stay for a drink at the bar, or book a table for dinner from 7.30pm onwards at Aurora restaurant to debrief after what is guaranteed to be an engaging and thought-provoking forum.
