1-31 May 2024

The theme for South Australia’s History Festival 2024 is POWER.

Power means a lot of things, in a lot of places and spaces. There is power in science, power in art, power in the food we share and the clothes we wear. There is power in industry. There is power in storytelling. Above all, there is power in people.

Every single one of us has a story. Some of these stories are grand and far-reaching; others are quiet and personal, held close. Some are handed down as lasting relics; others are broadcast widely or uploaded with fleeting regard for their permanence.

We carry these stories with us; some of them are written across our faces. And every one of our stories is enmeshed with South Australia’s vibrant, living history.
