Wavelength is back, following the Labour Day holiday! We told the stories of living as a young atheist, South Australia’s rising craft beer scene, the Adelaide Film Festival and the Cora Barclay Centre.
Atheism is on the rise around the world, with almost 4.8 million Australians identifying as having no religion at the last census. That’s one in five Australians, so AJ decided to chat to some young people from around Adelaide to find out what being an atheist means to them.
Adelaide is known for it’s food and wine, but we’re starting to care about our beer as well. There are hundreds of small, local breweries in South Australia creating craft beer. Zane profiled NOLA Adelaide, a CBD bar dedicated to local craft beer and whiskey, and two successful local breweries: Prancing Pony and Lady Burra Brewhouse. He found out how craft breweries worked and why Adelaide is starting to respond to this emerging scene.
The Adelaide Film Festival will be running this month from the 15th – 25th of October, featuring films from all over the world. Sarah caught up with festival director Amanda Duthie to give us an insight into what we can expect to see this year, as well as Kirsty Stark – The producer of the Australian film ‘A Month Of Sundays’ which is premiering at the festival.
The Cora Barclay Centre celebrated its 70th Anniversary helping South Australian families last week. It’s a not-for-profit organisation with a mission to teach deaf or hearing impaired children how to listen, speak and communicate with the world – ensuring they have no limits in life. The centre never turns away a deaf child and is always fundraising to keep up their good work. With Loud Shirt Day coming up this week, Allanah chatted to some of the team to find out what’s changed in 70 years of service.
