The latest projects from City Standard

  • CS/08
    A curious vantage
    In collaboration with Run Wild Productions, City Standard is developing a series of short documentaries. Each episode will follow an individual who is part of the city’s fabric and take us inside their unusual perspective on the CBD.
  • CS/09
    Have you seen home
    A project from musician Elena Nees and artist Tyrone Ormsby that reflects the line between the exotic and the familiar using the mirror of home. This is City Standard’s first visual essay and is being created as an example to encourage future submissions.


  • I think most of the motivation behind my support comes from a general feeling that I’m reaching for something that just isn’t there when I want to read a more considered analysis of the news.

  • An open and transparent editorial process with shareholders is very interesting to me… I think Adelaide can position itself to be a player in changing media models so I’m keen to see where the City Standard goes.
