This weekend, head into the CBD to see the latest MOD. exhibition on North Terrace and celebrate the Lunar New Year in Rundle Mall or take a trip to the Fleurieu Film Festival.
What’s On: Fleurieu Film Festival, Lunar New Year celebrations and more
Year of the tiger
Celebrate the Lunar New Year in Rundle Mall on Friday, February 4 with a day of free activities in the heart of the CBD. Kick off the year of the tiger with traditional lion dances every hour, on the hour from 12pm until 6pm and watch as professional acrobatic dancers in full crimson and yellow Chinese lion costumes weave their way down the mall. The God of Fortune will be handing out red envelopes from 12pm to 4pm containing golden chocolate coins, Rundle Place dining vouchers or Rundle Mall shopping vouchers. Be sure to stroll beneath the canopy of intricately detailed and boldly coloured lanterns in Gawler Place and find them illuminated after dusk.
The Fleurieu Film Festival will return on Saturday, February 5, at the McLaren Vale and Fleurieu Coast Visitor Centre with the 2022 theme “Dreams”. The festival includes musical entertainment, food vans and a bar to accompany the viewing of short films in the open air. A roadshow after the festival will screen the films in towns on the Fleurieu Peninsula, providing access for people who are unable to attend the festival.
Entries are now open for two of the feature events of the 2022 Penola Coonawarra Arts Festival – the 2022 John Shaw Neilson Acquisitive Art Prize and the 2022 Design Prize. The Penola Coonawarra Arts Festival will be celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, with the event being held from Thursday, May 12, to Sunday, May 15. The winner of the John Shaw Neilson Acquisitive Art Prize will receive $12,000 and have their work included in the collection of previous winners at the Penola Coonawarra Visitor Information Centre.

See the unseen
In their newest exhibition Invisibility, MOD. will be shining a light on the unseen to help us better understand the world around us and our place in it. Invisibility will let you time travel underground, delve into the tech monopolies controlling our lives and slow down to notice the importance of the land around us. The exhibition in the MOD. building on North Terrace will open on Tuesday, February 1, and run through to late November this year.
