Nice to Meet You is a series of public talks which invites visiting curators to share their knowledge and experiences with Adelaide audiences and arts communities. Speakers are invited to share their career journeys and insights into their organisation and upcoming projects with local audiences. The project is part of ACE and Guildhouse’s shared motivation to create points of connection, exchange and learning within the visual arts between South Australia, Australia and other parts of the world.

This initiative has been supported by the Government of South Australia through Arts South Australia.

Speaking to a small audience, Nice to Meet You is an opportunity to connect meaningfully with the trajectory of an arts leader who engages artists and audiences through thoughtful and ambitious curation.

We are happy to book an interpreter if needed – please reach out to if you would like to make a request.
