Whether you've lived in Australia all your life or just recently moved here, you've probably already noticed one key fact: Aussies are sport-mad. Whether cricket, league, footy, soccer or rugby – just to name a few – you're never starved of live or televised sporting matches to enjoy.
So when you've had your sporting fill and need to recharge, it's nice to have a change and enjoy something a little bit different every once in a while. That's what makes Adelaide such a great place to live – the array of cultural events and experiences on offer.
Just take the Mill, Adelaide's artists' central space complete with studios and industry offices, and only an approximate 12-minute drive from property in Prospect. This 11 July, the Mill is inviting you to "enter a dream space where, regardless of religious persuasion, you will experience the eternal, the personal, the real and the imagined through the eyes of 21 Adelaide Artists," according to the centre's official website.
The event in question is the Pantheon, a curated exhibition and performance event being held at the centre. You'll see artworks and performances by artists who have been challenged to use ancient gods and myths to redefine themselves and consider humanity and identity. Whether you own a house in Burnside or a property in North Adelaide, it might be worth coming along.
Both the exhibit and the event's closing party are completely free and open to the public, but if you want something a little bit more immersive and interactive, there are 100 limited tickets to the performance part of the event.
If you need to decompress and process the heady ideas after the event's finished, you could always take a stroll through the city afterwards, and enjoy its nighttime beauty.
