The SA Writers Centre lends the strongest possible support to Radio Adelaide, a unique and vitally important cultural institution that is cherished by listeners, artists, writers and readers.
Radio Adelaide is a key element of the arts ecology in SA, and makes crucial contribution to our robust and sustainable artistic community.
Radio Adelaide has for many years been the key media supporter for the arts in South Australia and has provided comprehensive arts coverage, covering stories other media outlets ignore, and bringing to light the breadth of arts activity here in the state and beyond – from blockbuster authors to tiny but vital community arts projects. It has played a particularly crucial role in supporting emerging and experimental arts and artists, often being the first (and only) media outlet to support new South Australian festivals, events, artists and writers that have gone to great future success.
The literary community is particularly indebted to Radio Adelaide’s constant and unfailing support of local writers, giving them a regular platform for their work that is not available in any other media space.
It is hard to imagine South Australia’s cultural life without Radio Adelaide, both as a media outlet supporting artists, events, and organisations, but also as an arts institution bringing diverse and high quality cultural experiences to South Australians on daily basis.
