Awards and Testimonials
Each Adelaide Festival partnership is negotiated to personally address the outcomes sought from within the sponsorship. This strategy has enabled Adelaide Festival to win partnership accolades (2008, 2010 and 2012 ABAF recipient) recognising excellence in partnership and best practice.
"The Adelaide Festival, an internationally recognised event for the community, by the community, is the key event for the arts on the South Australian calendar. The Bank has proudly sponsored the Adelaide Festival since 2004, demonstrating our strong commitment to the South Australian community in support of our vision to be Australia’s leading customer-connected bank."

"It is with great pride that the University of South Australia continues to support the Adelaide Festival as one of the most important cultural events in the Australian calendar and an occasion that offers an opportunity to engage with the visual arts at the highest level of excellence.
"The Adelaide Festival is a window to the world and attracts some of the most illuminating and fascinating talent. Our partnership to support its highly esteemed visual arts program is a perfect fit for the University. As home to the second largest public art gallery in the state, the wonderful Samstag Museum of Art, and as the key educator of hundreds of visual arts practitioners, who are making their mark here at home and around the globe, we have an abiding commitment to the visual arts."
