Our first ever Tutti Kids & Youth School Holiday Program was a fabulous success and a great start to the year, with our Visual, Digital and Performing Arts Programs are already up and running.

Visual Arts and Tutti Artist, Kurt Bosecke, are putting the final touches on the first exhibition for the year, BEASTLY PROJECTS which will take place during the Adelaide Fringe.

All choirs, the Tutti Kids and Youth program and Company AT start this week with many exciting projects on the way, including the Tutti Choir's first performance at a Film Night screening of Red Dog: True Blue on 15 February.

Seeking Storage Space!

Our famous Sepeda Lampu (3 wheeled bikes) used for the acclaimed Shedding Light project during OzAsia 2015 desperately need a home. If you have spare warehouse | shed | storage space (minimum 10 cubic metres). We do use them from time to time so would need to access them easily.
Contact Jane Gronow with any bright, shiny, neon lit ideas at Tutti on 8422 6221 or email

TKY School Holiday Program 

A big thank you to everyone who attended our first School Holiday Program. We hope to run more activities like this in the future- get in touch if you want to join us!
Over the three days we experimented with clay, making our own characters and drawing a scene for them to live in. There was kite making, which all flew! We also had a great time creating music and dance routines together.
If you want to continue the fun during the school term contact us about the Tutti Kids and Youth program which runs every Tuesday and Saturday.
