As festival season descends upon Adelaide, Light has launched as a multi-faceted venue powered by world-leading technology and underwritten by an Adelaide-first business model.
Funding the arts is a complex business, particularly amidst a pandemic-induced economic slowdown and in a country where cultural investment is seen as politically loaded.
In their new multi-faceted venue, Light, entrepreneurs Sophie and Nick Dunstone believe they have a solution.
“We wanted to do it differently,” says Nick. “Differently from all the other arts organisations that were relying on government funding, but also not just to replicate the other philanthropic arts organisations.”
