Adelaide Fringe

The Adelaide Fringe is Australia's largest open-access arts festival; featuring artists from around the globe. Performances include cabaret, comedy, circus, dance, film, theatre, music, visual arts and so much more.

In 2017, the University is back supporting this internationally renowned event.


For the duration of the Fringe Festival, the University of Adelaide presents LightWorks, a motion-sensing wall of lights that detects your presence and mirrors your movement as you walk. LightWorks is a playful display, a light show that is engaging to watch as shapes and pictures unfold. Start thinking of your moves, step out of the shadows and leap into the light with LightWorks.

Where: The University of Adelaide, North Terrace front fence
When: Friday 17 February – Sunday 26 March from 8:00pm to midnight daily.

Don't forget to share your light creations with us using the #UALightworks!

Digital Walls

The University of Adelaide is proud to sponsor the Digital Walls program, featuring our own Elder Hall and other iconic buildings along North Terrace.

The Elder hall facade will be filled with animated light and music, through ingenious interactivity as a playful, young, bold and curious audience take their turn to control the building and become virtuosos of light and sound.

Watch as the bravest in the crowd step up to create their own piece of music and visual art animating the building with moving, grooving architectural projection.

Where: Elder Hall, The University of Adelaide, North Terrace
When: Friday 17 February - Sunday 19 February from 8:30pm to midnight (three nights only!)
