Save The Date! Looking Towards 2021
It is hard to believe that 11 weeks ago we were together at WOMADelaide in the midst of an extraordinarily beautiful long weekend of music, arts, dance and cultures from across the world.
Of course now we realise how incredibly fortunate we were to be able to deliver the festival – equally for audiences and artists of the Adelaide Festival, the Adelaide Fringe – and our sister event WOMAD New Zealand, before all of our worlds changed in ways that seemed unimaginable only weeks before.
We hope you are all now keeping safe and well and send our best wishes and support, in particular to the artists and our colleagues throughout the arts community in persevering through these most challenging of times! If you are in a position to support artists through this period, there are some easy avenues to do so such as via the Australian Cultural Fund and Support Act.
For all of us involved in presenting WOMADelaide, these times of lockdown also serve to highlight the fundamental importance of the arts, and this festival in particular, in its role of presenting such a celebration of the diversity of culture and our common humanity, which remains central to our lives.
SAVE THE DATE!
5 – 8 March 2021
We are pleased to let you know that over the months ahead, we will be busy planning the 2021 festival. While there are many uncertainties at the moment, we are working through the evolving landscape to ensure we deliver a fantastic event again next year; one that celebrates the richness and depth of creative and artistic diversity that defines WOMADelaide as the World’s Festival.
Look after each other, stay positive, and walk with us toward 2021 as we keep you updated on tickets, news and programming info over the coming months.
