Description

Mandy Paul presents June's Talking History lecture: 'A new attraction for Adelaide: the Centre of Democracy.'


A collaboration between the History Trust and the State Library, the Centre of Democracy will open in late May 2017. Come along and discover the why and how of creating this new gallery which celebrates South Australia’s history of democracy and challenges visitors to consider contemporary issues. Hear some of the lesser-known stories relating to our political past and find out about the complexities and opportunities of presenting history in the digital age.


This free public lecture is part of History Trust of South Australia's Talking History series.
5.15pm for a 5.30pm start. Parking available on Torrens Parade Ground, off Victoria Drive. Refreshments will be provided.


Mandy Paul is the Director of the Migration Museum and project manager of the Centre of Democracy. She has postgraduate qualifications in history and museum studies, and has curated exhibitions on a wide range of subjects, from John McDouall Stuart to internment during the First World War. She has published widely in Australian and South Australian history.
