Since its inception in February 2017, Sanaa Festival has been a popular event in the South Australian community. Showcasing the work of Sanaa’s international artists alongside locally based Australian musicians, artists, foodies and creatives, the festival is a taste for the senses. The event has been described by audiences as an open space, where anyone from all walks of life, and all cultures, can congregate to appreciate and learn more about the cultures from which some South Australians originate.
