Seeking Expressions of Interest for an activation - Chihuly in The Garden

21 February 2024

Do you have an idea for an activation in Adelaide Botanic Garden during the Chihuly glass art event? We want to hear from you!

Incredible works by renowned glass artist, Dale Chihuly, will be on display in Adelaide Botanic Garden from 27 September 2024 to 29 April 2025.

Chihuly’s Garden Cycle installations draw visitors from far and wide, attracting diverse audiences.

We are seeking Expressions of Interest from individuals, organisations and businesses that can demonstrate an ability to create, manage and/or support an activation program at Adelaide Botanic Garden as part of Chihuly Event, providing additional opportunities for visitors to enjoy the Chihuly installation and the Garden.

The offering/program should seek to enhance or support the Chihuly installation for visitors, create memorable visitor experiences, demonstrate economic viability and community interest, and create a financial return for your business and the BGSH.

Some examples of the kinds of support that we are seeking include (but are not limited to) public event creation and management, site management support, ticketing support, regular programs such as tours or one-off events, and the development of related products and services.

This EOI opens Tuesday 20 February 2024 and closes 5pm, Friday 5 April 2024 (please let us know of your intention to submit by Thursday 28 March).
