The South Australian Living Artists Festival was established in 1998 to promote and celebrate the many talented visual artists in South Australia. SALA was initially a one-week festival and has grown steadily to span the entire month of August.
In 2021, SALA will welcome both online exhibitions/events and physical exhibitions that comply with the South Australian Government restrictions relating to gatherings and safe physical distancing. SALA will also put on a range of projects to help audiences better explore the program. The SALA Program will be released on a date to be confirmed.
