Adagia Rooms


A short distance from the auditorium of this ethereal theatre can be found the Adagia Rooms, or at least they can be found by enlightened local citizens of sufficient means.

Are you an enlightened Adelaidean?

The Adagia Rooms are where the Friends of Adelaide Adagia frequently meet during the intervals within and between presentations and performances.

The Friends are the main upholders of journalistic excellence in this part of the world.  They know the value of quality Adelaide journalism and they are willing to pay for its production and distribution.

Erasmus is often to be found in one of the Adagia Rooms, updating his notebooks.  He continues to take a keen interest in suitably informed social criticism in his usual, via media style.













Like Mozart, Erasmus has been portrayed in various artistic ways.

Are you a supporter of the Mozarty Party and/or the Moderate Australia Party, or a lesser sort of political organisation?

Have you ever been in an Adagia Room elsewhere? 












The Adagia Rooms within Villa Twaklinilkawt are primarily for Adelaidean patrons, though other South Australians may also apply for admittance, subject to relevance. 

Such patrons are not necessarily amongst the Friends of Adelaide Adagia though the most enlightened amongst them tend to be.

The management of information and the sharing of knowledge should never be left to untrained amateurs.  Yet highly trained amateurs are another matter entirely.

Many members of the Friends of Adelaide Adagia have been highly trained in the assessment and management of vast quantities of information. 

They have participated in the collation and correction of data on many occasions. 

They obviously have the public interest uppermost in their minds at all times.











Quite a few of the Friends of Adelaide Adagia are also members of the Adelaide Adagia News Ensemble.

If you intend to apply for membership of the ensemble, can you afford the training fees, and the time?

As in any worthy ensemble, absolute dedication is required, as is success in the initial auditions.

The minimum registration fee for the first stage of the assessment process is $15,000, paid in advance.

Admittance to the Friends of Adelaide Adagia is not so easy to obtain.












Do you already have a reputation as an enlightened leader?

For digital attendance in the Adagia Rooms, on between ten and twelve occasions per year, the required payment depends on the total number of confirmed attendees.

The maximum possible number of attendees. on any particular occasion, is set at 5,000.  That is mainly for symbolic reasons associated with hospitality.  

Before the end of the prior calendar year, prospective participants in future events in the Adagia Room are required to take responsibility for organising the full, advance payment between themselves.

The minimum total cost for twelve occasions in the Adagia Rooms in 2018 has been calculated at around $5,000,000 though confidentiality precludes full disclosure of the cash-related and in kind costings.

The funding of investigative journalism requires much sensitivity.









Increasing the availability of resources is the only way to maintain high journalistic standards, and to surpass them.
The Adelaide Adagia Investigative Journalism Budget for 2019 is likely to be around $10,000,000, at least 25% of which will be required in cash. 

Your sufficiently generous, philanthropic and administrative contributions to the Friends of Adelaide Adagia will therefore be of significant societal benefit.
