Who we are
The Adelaide Hills International Sculpture Symposium is an incorporated not for profit community based organisation formed in 2011 to develop an exciting Arts initiative for the Adelaide Hills and South Australia.
Message from our first Patron 2013-2014
"It gives me great pleasure to be Patron of the Adelaide Hills’ International Sculpture Symposium.
"This exciting new Adelaide Hills biennial event fulfills the vision of local sculptor Silvio Apponyi to enrich the Hills’ region with sculpture. It brings to South Australia internationally- acclaimed sculptors from all over the world to create art for permanent placement at sites throughout the Adelaide Hills.
"The eight pieces from the first successful event held in 2012 have been installed and are the beginning of a world class Sculpture Trail through the Hills. The 24 sculptures from three events will leave an enduring legacy of culture for the communities and for visitors. It will also deliver significant cultural, social, economic and tourism benefits to the region.
"I highly commend the enthusiasm and amazing generosity shown by many Hills’ businesses, communities and private individuals to support this initiative and make it possible. I am sure they will be delighted with the outcome.
"The AHISS Board and Artistic Director Silvio Apponyi should be congratulated on the contribution they have made to enriching the community in which they live, and I wish the Symposium all the best for the future."
