What's On

Shhhh don’t tell anyone about the Format Systems Fundraiser


  1. 1
  2. 2

You have a slither of an opportunity to slide into Format Systems on Hindley Street today and tomorrow and put down a dollar or fifty and walk away with an artwork worth thousands.


Format Systems
80 Hindley Street
Adelaide 5000

Silent bidding from 12pm Thursday November 3rd
Live Auction: 9pm Friday November 4th

Featured artwork above: Aida Azin, Tom Moore and Roy Ananda

Today, Format Systems opens silent bidding on a collection of art worth upwards of $20,000 – donated by high profile names like Gerry Wedd, Tom Moore and Roy Ananda to name a few – ahead of what we can only assume will be a VERY LOUD AUCTION on Friday night.

Format Systems is the Artist Run Initiative (ARI) that keeps on keeping on: Birthplace of Renew Adelaide and the very first “small venue” on Peel Street that helped create the special bar license before being evicted. Format isn’t everyone’s cup of tea (they mostly serve fruity lexia) but they’re an important part of what makes the city tick.

Keep Adelaide weird, buy some excellent art and enjoy some reasonably priced champagne this weekend.
