Welcome to ZestFest 2018
ZestFest is a unique South Australian festival – a chance to turn stereotypes of what it means to be older on their head.
Run by COTA SA, the peak body representing the needs, interests and aspirations of older South Australians, ZestFest is South Australia’s arts and cultural festival specifically for those aged 50+.
The 2018 program is now available so dive in and add some zest to your life this October.
Join Gold Walkley winner and renowned health guru Dr Norman Swan for this year’s ZestFest Oration Busting the Ageing Myth. Dr Swan will be joined by Professor Alison Kitson, who will lead a Q&A session following the oration.
So that’s what old is!
Do you love writing? Do you reckon you know what old is? The inaugural COTA SA Writer’s Prize is open to any unpublished piece of writing by a South Australian writer, with the top two entries claiming their share of a $500 cash prize.
Back after a sold-out session last year, radio veteran Amanda Blair returns to host a line-up of eminent speakers on identifying, embracing and nurturing the inner zest in your life. Nothing is off-limits in this free 3-hour workshop.
The Cube Experience
Iris Apfel once said “You can’t go to the future if you haven’t come from the past”. So think outside the box and step into The Cube for a hosted wine tasting and self-guided tour of D’Arenberg’s newly opened creative and architectural masterpiece.
A vibrant floral flourish, COTA Cornucopia is an art installation which has assembled pieces from all over South Australia to form part of a community art display on Hutt Street, Adelaide. Free to view throughout September and October.
