Nature Festival – A New Festival for South Australia
Nature Festival is a 10-day open-access festival celebrating the role nature plays in the identity of all South Australians. Expect family play experiences from Nature Play, outdoor yoga, public talks, and artistic installations. Nature Festival’s inaugural program hosts free and ticketed events dedicated to celebrating nature in positive, creative, and meaningful ways.
The Nature Festival is a 2020 pilot project of Amongst It. Amongst It is a collaborative, cross-sector innovation project exploring our individual and societal relationships with nature. For the past several years, they have been exploring creative ways to build individual relationships to everyday nature and celebrate how important nature is to the identity of South Australia.
The program has events in the following categories:
- slow down
- help out
- arts + culture
- nature play
Most of the events range from completely free to $20 or under, making it affordable for families.
Why a Nature Festival?
In a time of climate change, bushfires, and global pandemics, now more than ever we need to cultivate a deeper relationship with nature as a society.
That relationship is fundamental to our personal wellbeing, core to who we are as a state, and the foundation of all of the other work that we undertake to protect and steward nature.
Plus, being in nature feels good. We know it intuitively, Aboriginal culture values it explicitly, and modern science has more recently begun to quantify the wellbeing benefits of nature.
We think that’s worth celebrating, and we hope you’ll join us.
