In light of the COVID-19 restrictions currently in place for South Australia, all Illuminate Adelaide events (free and ticketed) will be paused while we await further advice from SA Health.

Our team is still working hard to process refunds for the ticket buyers who have been affected by event cancellations, please check your emails and spam folders for our communications. We appreciate your patience while our team navigates this ever-changing situation.

We hope to be able to restart as soon as restrictions are lifted and will advise members of the public accordingly.

Stay home, stay safe.

IT'S COMPLICATED is yours to explore after hours.

Step into the bloodstream and hack the immune system, raise an octopus and see what is happening in the ocean when you’re not looking.

Delve deeper into complex systems, where problems are trickier to solve. Make your own glowie and see how everything is interconnected.

IT'S COMPLICATED pulls back the curtain on the seemingly simple and reveals just how complicated, and complex, the world can be.

Featuring a closing DJ set from The Avalanches, live music, exhibitions, cinema and light installations, MAAD brings out the best in the west with a party to remember.
