I get it, you moved to Melbourne is an Adelaide Fringe exhibition considering the Adelaide to Melbourne brain drain across two historic venues from February 29 until March 7. 


In a pop-up social museum, Adelaide-bred, Melbourne-fled curator Tahney Fosdike scrutinises Adelaide’s brain drain. Presenting an idiosyncratic assemblage of visual art, video, creative writing and historical archives, the museum considers the forces behind people leaving Adelaide to pursue a new life in Melbourne and never looking back. Is the grass really greener on the other side?

Featuring John Firth, Jenny Allnut, Grace Harper, Julia Derwas, Chelsea Birrane, Alexandra Dobson, Will Preece, Amalia Krueger and Angus Hamra.

With special thanks to Adelaide Fringe, Jeffrey Firth, University of Melbourne Archives, State Library of South Australia, National Library of Australia, History Trust of South Australia and the Lion Hotel.

Opening at the Chapel, Migration Museum on Saturday 29 February 6pm-8pm with drinks and nibbles provided. All welcome.

Please note the exhibition will be located at the Chapel, Migration Museum 29 February - 1 March before relocating to the Lion Hotel, North Adelaide 4-7 March.
