Talking History Program

Talking Histories returns in 2024 with a renewed focus upon South Australian stories. Each of the four panel sessions takes a topic that touches upon our past and present in a powerful way. In each panel we hear from three people with a particular passion and perspective in ways that promise exciting new insight.

The Talking History program is delivered in partnership with the University of South Australia.

The location for all Talking History events in 2024 is the Denise Bradley Forum, H 5-02, UniSA City West Campus, Hawke Building, 55 North Terrace, Adelaide, 5000

Each event begins at 5:45pm for a 6:00pm start.
