Statement from SALA 

SALA will be a little different this year and invite registrations for exhibitions and other activities which can be accessed either online or while complying with physical distancing measures. Those who have already started planning their event are encouraged to consider presenting it in a different format. Possibilities include online exhibitions or experiences, DIY walking tours, recording an artist talk, giving a Facebook Live studio tour. For now, registrations which do not follow South Australian State Government restrictions will not be accepted. By the way registrations for 2020 SALA are now free.

To register visit SALA website salafestival.com

Registrations close 30 June 2020.
