Australian Book Review looks forward to a very different year for the arts from 2020–21. To mark the imminent reopening, we were delighted to announce a nine-day visit to Adelaide in 2022 for ABR Patrons and supporters. The tour was led by Peter Rose (Editor of ABR) and Christopher Menz (former Director of the Art Gallery of South Australia).
The visit from March 5–13 was timed to coincide with the very best of Adelaide Festival and Writers’ Week in 2022. For several years, ABR has worked with Academy Travel to create stimulating international tours for its supporters, and we will once again be working with them. Academy Travel has generously decided to support the Festival by becoming partner-level sponsors – the only travel company to do so. This gives them, and ABR, access to the best tickets to performances and the opportunity to meet artists at the Festival.
ABR had a strong presence at Writers’ Week, also hosting a reception. ABR has close links with many writers on the program.
