What’s On: Get moving, photography festival and pup treats for a cause

There are plenty of COVID-safe events happening around SA this weekend, so it's time to get moving, get into the arts and maybe get the dog a treat or two.

Stretch it out

Studio Pilates is holding their second Hundreds for Hope day, opening their doors and giving Adelaide the opportunity to experience free reformer pilates to benefit Kids’ Cancer Project. Held in the CBD, Norwood, Unley and Henley Beach studios, the classes can be attended by providing a donation to the charity on the day. A 50-class pack for each of the studios will be raffled on the day.

Snap happy

The Shimmer Festival of Photography is a month-long celebration of the creative power of photography hosted by the City of Onkaparinga. On now, until October 11, there will be exhibitions, events, forums and workshops across different venues, with highlights including images of the Great Australian Bight captured by Hayden Richards, portraits by analogue photographer Tony Kearney, and Melissa Little’s Botanic Bodies — a collection of intriguing digital images set among urban spaces.

Seeing Through Darkness

Get set for a cross-artform immersive experience at the Art Gallery of SA with this new work directed by Restless Dance Theatre artistic director Michelle Ryan. Seeing Through Darkness is a response through performance to the work of Expressionist artist Georges Rouault, and has been created in collaboration with designer Geoff Cobham and music ensemble Zephyr Quartet. Performances are 15 minutes and will take place between September 4 and October 2.


Tasty treats

Local Walford School student Rose Bartlett has been busy created dog treats to raise money for Friends of Mithra, an Australian charity established to support the Mithra Education Centre in Chennai, India, which runs programs for children living with disability. The treats are available at Nutrition Republic cafes at Glenelg, Hyde Park and Bowden and are $5 for a pack of four. Through the Daisy’s Dog Treats fundraiser, Rose hopes to raise up to $700 to help build a new girls’ dormitory for the centre. If you don’t have a pup, you can still donate through Everyday Hero.
