With up to 20,000 people expected to attend the 2019 SALT festival, the ten-day event just keeps getting bigger and Beyond Bank is thrilled to be involved again in this annual celebration of creativity and innovation.
Indeed, it's catchy slogan of "anything is possible" really sums up the talent expected to descend on the Southern Eyre Peninsula between April 19-28.
Energetic and engaged, creative and cutting-edge, SALT Festival brings a real vibrancy to local communities, showcasing all that is great about South Australia's vibrant regions.
And it is this connection with local communities that makes SALT the perfect fit for Beyond Bank.
As a customer-owned bank with a robust regional and metropolitan branch network that spans the width of Australia from Canberra to Perth and many points in between, Beyond Bank is heavily invested in local communities.
"Community really is in our DNA at Beyond Bank," said Peter Rutter, general manager, Community Development, Beyond Bank.
"It's actually the best part of being a customer-owned bank because we can work closely with clubs and groups who do some incredible things at a grassroots level."

"Supporting them, whether it be with funds or volunteers, I can assure you we always receive more than we give and that's what creating good is all about."
In Port Lincoln, Beyond Bank has been honoured to help out some incredible and inspirational people.
People like the amazing staff at Yarredi Services Inc, a local domestic violence centre which cares for women at their most vulnerable and the team at Little Bags of Hope, a foster child support group.
People like the awesome women at Dragons' Abreast who continue to show courage and good humour in the wake of often extreme adversity.
There is the small army of volunteers at the Port Lincoln RSL Club, a bustling hub of community activity, those who pitch in to put together the Port Lincoln Show and the many local sporting clubs who unite us all - in victory and yes, occasionally defeat too.
"A lot of our financial support has been driven by our customers who have a Community Reward Account, which allows them to nominate a not-for-profit group of their choice and, once a year, we donate a percentage of the interest from that account to their chosen charity."
"This unique account, along with grants and sponsorships has allowed us to re-invest some $105,000 into the Port Lincoln community in the past three years."
"It's what customer-owned banking is all about and we wish everyone at SALT Festival, the organisers, participants and audiences a fantastic few days of making anything possible."
