As FIFTY+SA celebrates its first anniversary, it’s a fitting time to look back at a year dedicated to creating a publication that not only celebrates the cultural, artistic, and historical wealth of South Australia, but also honours the profound significance of lived experiences.

Our launch issue saw the commemoration of The State Theatre Company’s fiftieth anniversary, where we had the privilege of sitting down with Artistic Director Mitchell Butel, whose passion for the performing arts has continued to shape the cultural identity of our state. His vision left us with a lot to be excited about for the future of theatre in South Australia.

Throughout the year, we’ve introduced you to key creative figures contributing to all that is great about our state, including Ruth Mackenzie, the Artistic Director of the Adelaide Festival, David Gaimster, Director of the South Australian Museum, Ian Steele, founder of Kickstart For Kids, and Mr. Nick Chapley, the driving force behind Adelaide’s Finest Supermarkets. We’ve also looked at the impactful work of the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI), committed to improving community health and wellbeing. Fifty years of the Adelaide Festival Centre was another milestone which saw the pages of FIFTY+SA graced with artistic triumphs, cultural diversity, and the enduring impact of this iconic institution.

FIFTY+SA has also been lucky to share the expertise of Food Editor Mandy Hall, who has given us an exclusive “access all areas” look at the state’s finest dining experiences. Mandy’s discerning palate and her ability to capture the essence of each culinary adventure have offered a tasting plate of all there is to share in South Australia’s food scene. As the perfect accompaniment, Nick Stock our Wine Editor has shared with us some of his top drops and rare insights into his career as a wine critic. And just in case you’d like a show with your dinner and drinks, consummate entertainment expert Paul Kitching has kept us updated on the year’s most high profile events in his column, Let PK Entertain You. We’ve also had the privilege of featuring insights and perspectives from a line-up of well known South Aussie faces, including Jacqui Lim, Jane Reilly and Graham Cornes and the team at FIVEaa, among others.

As we raise a toast to our first anniversary, we express our gratitude to all who have supported us on the adventure so far. Together, we will continue to embrace the wisdom of age, celebrate the beauty of maturity, and explore the boundless possibilities that life offers beyond fifty.
