TAFE SA weaves creative dreams at AC Arts Bazaar

Nov 05, 2012

Annual Arts BazaarMeet the next generation of aspiring artists and help to support their creative dreams at the annual TAFE SA Adelaide College of the Arts (AC Arts) Bazaar on 6 December from 2 – 8pm.

From jewellery to photographs, ceramics to glassware and everything in between, this popular festival showcases the skills students have acquired over the course of their study in the many dozens of stalls on display.

AC Arts Creative Director Christie Anthoney says the Annual Arts Bazaar provides a great opportunity to pick up original hand-made crafts at very reasonable prices and to support local artists over the festive season.

“When we buy something truly South Australian, we benefit our state’s economy and ensure its longterm future,” she says.

“Artists producing hand-made products are effectively sole traders/small businesses and need to be supported through opportunities to sell, as well as buying their work.”

AC Arts BazaarThose who are inspired by the creative works on display are welcome to get hands-on experience and professional training through the variety of short courses to advanced diplomas and degrees available at AC Arts.

“Adelaide College of the Arts is unique to Australia as no other college provides education and training in such a diverse range or arts practice in one building,” Ms Anthoney says.

“It offers higher education and vocational qualifications in the one building and focuses on intensive studio-based training.

“AC Arts provides real networks, great opportunities and skills to set you up.”
