Mandy Paul is speaking on the Centre of Democracy which will open in late May 2017, a collaboration between the History Trust and the State Library. 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.

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.
