The City of Marion values creativity and artistic expression in community life and is committed to providing support and opportunities for individual artists and arts organisations to be involved in projects, events, festivals, community celebrations, and art in public places. Following are some regular opportunities:

Council support for South Australian Living Artists (SALA) Festival artists

Council supports local artists taking part in the SALA Festival by subsidising artist registrations for individuals and groups with a rebate of $120. Limited rebates are available. Be quick! First in best dressed.

Artists who do not reside within Marion but are holding an exhibition in the council area for SALA are also eligible to claim the rebate.

Eligible artists should pay their registration as normal to the SALA office, then send a photocopy or electronic copy of their receipt to:
