The Umbrella Festival (previously set to open on 17th July) will be rescheduled to Friday 18 September – Sunday 4 October 2020, with the launch date and release of the Printed Program to be Wednesday 22 July, published by our partner Scenestr.

Homelessness is a far more complicated issue than ‘poverty’ and the associated range of causes need to be understood before they can each be addressed.  It may not be achievable to structure a society so that there is no homelessness, but rather a realistic goal might be to ensure that there are plenty of ways out of homelessness.

As a non-profit organisation, WOMADelaide’s continued growth depends on philanthropy to support the success, diversity and creativity excellence of the festival.

Once such supporter is Simon Hackett who spoke with aspiring journalist Bert Rich about the place WOMADelaide has within Adelaide’s culture. 

inishing with international classic such as Hallelujah and James Brown’s I Feel Good; the only thing that remains consistent throughout the show is the pride, and jubilant smiles on all choir members faces. This show is for them first and foremost, and a special gift for the lucky spectators witnessing something very unique.
