Each year, the SALA Festival is accompanied by a selection of guided tours. What better way to explore the festival than with the guidance of a hand-picked local artist!
All tours for the 2023 SALA Festival have now concluded.
2023 Guided walking tours
Our artist-led walking tours are a staple part of the festival.
Local & Contemporary Art TOUR
Saturday 19 August, 11am
Join artist and educator Dr Melanie Cooper for a tour of independent spaces that nurture and support local artists. If local galleries and the artworld seem a bit of a mystery, this tour will introduce you to the rich diversity of practices that come under the enormous umbrella of Contemporary Art.
Guided Bus tours
There are limited places on these guided tours, offering a behind-the-scenes look where it all happens: artist studios. You’ll hear from some of the artists and gain insight to the inner workings of these creative spaces.
Want to go at your own pace? Or just be in control of the music? We’ve got you covered.
