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.

View Shortlist

Social media has fundamentally reshaped the way many of us engage with our friends, our communities, and our world. But it also affects how we view ourselves, from the way an Instagram filter frames our face, to the carefully curated versions of our lives we share online. It allows us to speak our truths, while unleashing torrents of abuse; we are censored, but also left exposed. How can we reconcile these contradictions, and find a way to be ~very online~, without sacrificing our health, happiness and agency? In collaboration with the Fay Gale Centre for Research on Gender and Robinson Research Institute.

Speakers include: Taryn Brumfitt, Clementine Ford, Prof Megan Warin and Cambrey Payne. MC Tory Shepherd.
