YOUR HISTORY – OUR RESPONSIBILITY
Our job is to encourage present and future generations of South Australians to discover that this state’s past is rich, relevant and fascinating. Among the many stories unfolding across South Australia in the present, there are many worthy of being preserved for sharing in the future.
The History Trust of South Australia is exactly what our name implies. We carry the community’s trust to safeguard our state’s stories and memory collections so that they will not be lost. This means that they will continue to enrich the lives of current and future generations.
As a statutory authority, we report to Parliament and our Board of Trustees are accountable through the Minister for the Arts.
Our Act safeguards South Australia’s material heritage and encourages research and the public presentation of South Australian history.
