Following an electrifying start to 2024, kicking off with Adelaide’s unparalleled festival season, including the remarkable Fringe and Adelaide Festivals, it’s hard to imagine what more Adelaide has in store for us for the rest of the year. Yet, the city continues to deliver.

In the pipeline, we eagerly anticipate the winter season of Illuminate Adelaide, the forthcoming SALA Festival, and of course the always-fabulous Cabaret Festival—all of which you can find out more about in the pages of this issue of FIFTY+SA.

In this edition, we also turn our focus to the exceptional Evelyn Roth, a dynamic icon of South Australia, celebrated for her founding of Nylon Zoo and esteemed reputation as a local community artist. With her name synonymous with Maslin’s Beach and beyond, Evelyn’s story is a testament to her pioneering spirit. From her groundbreaking work in recycled fashion and wearable art during the ’70s to her collaborative endeavours with Pitjantjatjara communities in the ’80s, and ongoing large-scale art installations and residencies worldwide, her life’s work is truly a remarkable and eclectic collection of creativity and innovation. Coupled with her daily yoga practice, mindfulness, and dedicated community involvement, Evelyn’s impact is nothing short of inspirational.

Our brand new Art and Culture writer, songstress Libby O’Donovan, sits down with 2024 Cabaret Festival Artistic Director Virginia Gay to talk all things Cab Fest, how the event has been pieced together, and some of the exciting lineup and surprises we have in store for us this year.  We also meet Indigenous artist and opal miner George Cooley and dive into the connection to country he explores in his stunning works. 

This issue truly is a testament to the creativity and diversity that make Adelaide truly remarkable. Enjoy the read, and may it inspire you to embrace the spirit of innovation and community that defines our beloved city.
