    • Adelaide Writers’ Week is Australia’s largest and oldest literary festival, offering both writers and readers a unique opportunity to spend time sharing ideas and literary explorations in the beautiful Pioneer Women's Memorial Gardens. Each Writers’ Week includes six days of free panel sessions that are presented live in the gardens, along with a series of ticketed special events and the ever-popular free children’s program.

    • A centrepiece of the Festival’s visual arts program, the Adelaide International exhibition is held biennially across four public galleries in Adelaide. Each Adelaide International also coincides with highly regarded Artists’ Week symposium as part of an exhilarating celebration of contemporary visual art across Adelaide’s major galleries and leading art spaces.
