Guest Presenter: Grace Coy, Art Walk; Community Events Coordinator
Grace is the founder and curator of Adelaide Art Walks, which are interactive exhibition events. Audiences follow an illustrated map to discover art in unconventional gallery spaces. Adelaide Art Walks began in 2015 with two ticketed events on Melbourne Street and Hindley Street West. Audiences collect a map and a glass of wine, then visit over 10 venues to meet and greet the artists, buy artworks, enjoy live music, interactive activities and finish up with a party at the final location. Adelaide Art Walks sold over 650 tickets over 6 events, involved more than 40 artists, 30 businesses, 10 local musicians, and countless pieces of artwork. Grace has since worked on events such as SANTOS Tour Down Under, Tasting Australia, Adelaide Festival and now works in the events team at City of Prospect.
