We are back in the office and bursting at the seams with preparations for Adelaide Fringe events taking place over the next six weeks. Have a read below and make a note in your diaries about our fantastic forthcoming Fringe exhibition Small Things, also Hallelujah Handel, a collaborative Fringe performance with the Adelaide Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra, and Tutti's exciting Info Evening for participants and supporters. Also coming up in May is The Square, a new creative work by the Tutti Performing Arts Ensemble.
At the end of 2012 Tutti was successful in achieving Arts SA funding towards the presentation of Their Shadows in Us, a major exhibition at the Flinders City Gallery which will run from December 2013 - February 2014. The exhibition will be curated by Melanie Fulton and feature the work of Tutti Visual Artists working with well known South Australian artist Laura Wills. The catalogue will be written by Catherine Murphy. The exhibition is the result of a three year research project by Laura, Catherine and Tutti artists Aimee Crathern, Jane Hewitt, Dougie Jacobssen, Jackie Saunders and Michelle Hall into the lives of disabled residents who came to live at Minda as young children between 1930 and 1980.
All of the above projects celebrate the richness and diversity of Tutti's work and 2013 promises to be a significant year for our organisation. You can stay up to date with all projects via our facebook page, Twitter and website and we hope you will come along to many!

Do not miss Tutti's magical Fringe exhibition Small Things at the Bay Discovery Centre's gorgeous Mezzanine Gallery. Curated by Patricia Wozniak the works made by artists for this show are exquisite treasures each of which in the words of Arundhati Roy “pursues beauty to its lair”. Small Things will be opened by Adelaide Arts identity Jack Condous and Tutti Visual Artist Jenna May at 6pm on the evening of February 7th and you are all welcome. This exhibition is an absolutely fabulous opportunity to glimpse the range and quality of work being produced by artists in the Tutti Studios.
On the weekend of March 16th - 17th, the Poco Tutti Choir combines with Adelaide's own Dr Kevin Cameron and the Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra for four thrilling performances of 'Hallelujah Handel' for the Adelaide Fringe. Performances will be in the afternoons at Woodville Town Hall and Campbelltown Function Centre.
