The Adelaide City Council’s Splash Adelaide initiative is a series of pilot projects that ran from 1 November 2011 until 31 March 2012. The program was created to test innovative and experimental projects in public spaces in the city quickly, economically, and in collaboration with business, stakeholders
and the community.
It’s aim was to give Adelaide a splash of colour, allowing city users and workers to soak up the vibe of alfresco activations, street closures with music and vendors, and bring Adelaide alive over the summer. I was lucky enough to be a part of this wonderful team, who paved the way for these innovative projects across Adelaide.
As part of my role I ran communications for the team, and created everything from newsletters, profile articles and social networking. I also participated in the team that gave Adelaide the Waymouth Street Party and Eliza Street Art market, which I was especially proud to be involved in, as I got to work with some bright, talented and emerging artists from the Tooth & Nail Gallery.
