SALA Festival | 1-31 Aug 2023

SALA 2021

SALA Festival 2023

SALA runs for the entire month of August and is the largest community-based open-access visual arts festival in Australia.

SALA Festival is an open-access visual arts festival held annually which celebrates the work of living South Australian visual artists, regardless of age or experience. It involves exhibitions in venues like galleries, libraries, retail and community spaces, cafes, open studios, along coastlines, at schools, retirement villages, wineries and more. After the success of their online exhibitions in 2020 there are also numerous online exhibitions for people to view without needing to step outside. 

Every year, an established South Australian artist is celebrated as the SALA Feature Artist.   This artist’s work features on the SALA poster and printed program, and will be exhibited during the SALA Festival. Helen Fuller is the 2023 SALA Festival Feature Artist. Fuller is an artist whose practice has traversed painting, photography, sculpture and installation. In 2009, she attended a pottery class in the suburbs of Adelaide, where she created her very first pinch pots. Since then, she has incorporated clay into her practice. Look out for the 2023 SALA poster when it is released closer to August to see Fuller’s work. 


The South Australian Living Artists (SALA) Festival 2023 Program will be released in July 2023. The online program will allow you to refine your search by venue or artist, plus there are workshops, masterclasses, tours and much more.

There is usually a huge selection of family-friendly events on during SALA. Use the program to filter by “Family Friendly” to see them.
