JamFactory Gold

Golden years

Established in 1973 as a government initiative to promote contemporary art and design, JamFactory is celebrating its 50th year in 2023. JamFactory began as a craft training workshop in an old jam factory on Payneham Road, St Peters and was home to a gallery, shop and artist studios for glass, ceramics, leather, textiles and jewellery design. JamFactory moved to its current West End location in 1992 and opened a second location at Seppeltsfield Winery in 2013. To recognise a selection of the most influential achievements of the organisation’s Associate Program, the exhibition Gold: 50 years 50 JamFactory Alumni will be on display at JamFactory from July 21 to September 17.

The Cat in the Hat

When it’s too wet to play

The timeless Dr Seuss classic, The Cat in the Hat is heading to South Australia for the school holidays with Thing 1, Thing 2 and The Cat himself ready to run amok live on stage. The Cat in The Hat was first adapted for stage in 2009 by the National Theatre of Great Britain and is being presented in Australasia through a special arrangement with Music Theatre International. The play will tour regional South Australia with performances in Renmark, Port Pirie, Noarlunga and the Barossa before The Cat arrives in Adelaide at the Norwood Concert Hall on July 23.
