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 supported again this internationally renowned event.


For the duration of the Fringe Festival, the University of Adelaide presented LightWorks, a motion-sensing wall of lights that detects your presence and mirrors your movement as you walk. LightWorks was a playful display, a light show that was engaging to watch as shapes and pictures unfolded.

Digital Walls

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

The Elder hall facade was filled with animated light and music, through ingenious interactivity as a playful, young, bold and curious audience took turns to control the building and become virtuosos of light and sound.
