The Garden of Unearthly Delights remains unrivaled as Australia’s most vibrant and dynamic festival precinct. Each year we create a unique festival playground including multiple performance venues, bars, carnival rides, an array of world foods, market stalls and the most unexpected sideshow surprises. The Garden began with just one Spiegeltent in 2000. Over the past 22 years, it’s evolved into the greatest arts event in town and the heart of Adelaide’s summer arts festival season.

NATION. GENERATION. GENDER. COMMUNITY.

 

In our accelerated future into exponentiality, charting our societal course is more important than ever. Inside the echo chambers and filter bubbles, we face an ever increasing polarisation. Disparate beliefs and ideas chipping away at our communities and moral structure. Confusing and chaotic times filled with misinformation and misalignment chipping away at the very fibre of our commonality. These transformative changes require a different kind of due diligence and discourse. A convergence of thoughts and voices in an attempt for alignment. How, as a nation, do we align our policies, technologies, investment and education into a shared future? How can we better listen to those on the margins of generation, power and influence? Addressing the difficult conversations with an eye to change and agency rather than opinion or frustration. As we pull on these threads, we do so as a community. Let’s ensure our collective stride towards progress leaves no one behind.

INNER SPACE. POST HUMAN. LOVE, SEX & HAPPINESS. BIO & HEALTHTECH.

 

Human-machine symbiosis is profoundly altering our perception of self and reality, challenging our deepest notions of what it means to be human. In the mad march into the merge – where we face once-in-a-humanity challenge of defining our relationship with machines, we are faced with answering, or at least pondering, profound realities. As augmented realities, neural interfaces, machine companions and biotechnologies blur the lines between organic and artificial, we need to ask – Where is my, yours and our place in this new world? What will our new reality be? What will it mean to be human? Will we, or do we, want to become more human than human? Join us for a multi-layered dialogue.

CLIMATE. ENERGY. AGRIFOODTECH. SPACE.

 

The existence of our planet and people is threatened by climate change. The only thing that remains constant is change. The transition to sustainable energy is not just an option; it’s an imperative on a global scale. We need innovative agrifood technology solutions for food security, while protecting the environment. As we venture into space, we must be mindful of our ethical and environmental responsibilities. Join us as we explore renewable energy advancements, storage and distribution complexities, and the role of policy and innovation in shaping a sustainable energy future. Additionally, examine cutting-edge innovations in food production and consumption, focusing on sustainability, efficiency, and technology’s potential to address food security challenges without harming the planet.

CRE(AI)TIVITY, SPORTS & GAMING, WEB 3 & METAVERSE, MUSIC, FILM & ARTS

 

Technology is creating tectonic shifts in our culture. Our arts, our music, our stories are slowly being outsourced to new tools – and new possibilities. From the vivid brushstrokes of digital art, to the heart-pounding arenas of interactive entertainment and the immersive narratives of new media; technology’s enigmatic grasp is transcending imagination into tangible realms. Where will we draw the line – or is it even us that draws this line? Computing moved from desktops to our pockets and is now coming for our face. Generative AI is having a profound effect on all things creative. It’s come for our creativity and our knowledge. We’re soon to enter infinite worlds. The convergence of AI and augmentation will having us prompting our own universes. Will we further spiral away from a core of community or embrace these new machines as empathic? Autonomous or Anonymous. What will our journey be?
