SALA Festival

The South Australian Living Artists (SALA) Festival is a statewide festival of Visual Art.

The SALA Festival was established in 1998 to promote and celebrate the many talented visual artists in South Australia. Our aim to extend audiences remains a cornerstone of the Festival, and as an umbrella organisation we have continued a policy of inclusiveness allowing all artists at any level and working in any medium to be part of our annual SALA Festival every August.

Bridgewater Primary School are excited to be involved in this year’s SALA Festival. All students from our school have created art works for the exhibition which will adorn the walls of our heritage 1907 school hall at 46 Morella Grove. Our theme ‘The Earth Beneath Our Feet’ recognises the beauty of the environment we live in and our responsibility to protect it for the future.

Principal Barb Jenkins said the occasion of the school’s first participation in SALA was a great opportunity for students. “This exhibition showcases the beauty our children see in their environment and their respect for our Permangk past – environmental responsibility is a core theme,” Barb said.

Students will be on hand to guide visitors through the exhibit and explain the stories behind them.
