The City of Port Adelaide Enfield (PAE)* is putting the creative sector on the map, literally.  A new fund – the Arts Organisation Fund (AOF) – has been created by the City to attract and support professional arts organisations to the region.

The civic centre of the region, Port Adelaide, is just a short 14 kilometres from Adelaide CBD and is rich in historic buildings and large warehouses that hark back to the town’s role as the state’s main port. Many of these buildings are ripe for reactivation.
