Houndwave wouldn’t have been any more than an idea without the support of @splashadelaide…
Splash Adelaide partners and co-creates with the community to bring streets and public spaces to life through a series of activations, events and projects. Splash Adelaide takes a “lighter, quicker, cheaper“ approach to trial new ideas and see what works in the city’s spaces.

Winter 2017 applications are now open and must be submitted online at splashadelaide.com.au by close of business on 10 March. Successful applicants will need to implement their ideas between 1 May and 30 September this year.
Lord Mayor Martin Haese said with Adelaide’s daytime population of more than 220,000, and crowds of up to 50,000 expected at Adelaide Oval this winter for blockbuster night-time AFL games and events like June’s World Cup soccer qualifier, successful applicants could benefit from excellent exposure to new audiences.
“This year Splash Adelaide is encouraging local businesses to really think outside the square with their ideas and consider collaborating with creative people and neighbouring traders on projects or events that will bring people to their door and provide an exceptional city experience,” said Martin.
Since 2011 Splash Adelaide has helped pave the way for over 500 unique events and projects, everything from epic mud play for little people in a city laneway to a morning dance party along the Torrens Riverbank and fire spinning in Victoria Square.
“Whether it’s working with other businesses in your community to spruce up a laneway with a creative display or staging a unique event – the aim is to bring energy and activity to every corner of the city and get as many city residents, workers and visitors involved!”
Types of assistance offered by Splash Adelaide include waiving certain operational expenses associated with running an event or project, promotional support, project facilitation and mentorship.
“Whatever you need to get your idea off the ground, it will be complemented by priceless engagement with Splash Adelaide’s active 23,500 strong online community,” said Martin.
