A Trail of Tales…photo album


Have you seen our 2016 Adelaide Fringe Festival event: A Trail of Tales?

It’s a colourful and whimsical display put together by local writers and artists – a mutually inspired installation of words and art at Pine Park, just behind Gallery 1855 in Tea Tree Gully.

Writers used Pine Park, Anstey’s Hill and Tea Tree Gully as locations to pen their stories, poems and fairy tales, while the artists used the stories to create the artworks.

All of the stories and artworks have been spread throughout Pine Park, adorning trees, turning the fragrant space into a colourful, magic storyland.

Local schools have also been enjoying the display. Several school groups have made excursions to Pine Park for a special fairy story time, held beneath the fragrant trees.

It has also been a popular spot for families to wander through during this year’s Fringe Festival.

Don’t miss it – head to Gallery 1855, at 2 Haines Road in Tea Tree Gully, and it’s just a short walk up to Pine Park, behind the art gallery.

Thanks go to our writers and artists who collaborated together on this massive project. They include: The Tea Tree Gully Writers’ Group, Gallery 1855, Off the Couch, Tea Tree Studio, Tea Tree Gully Green Army, Paddock’s Creative Writing Group, SpecFic Chic, Carole Simmonds, Michael Sneyd and Tea Tree Gully Youth.
