2017/18 South Australian History Fund

An exciting range of SA history will be uncovered and presented thanks to funding from the History Trust’s annual South Australian History Fund.

19 organisations and individuals are sharing in $50,000 for projects including:

  • a suffragette history book in graphic novel format
  • interpretive signage for the Beltana State Heritage Area
  • preservation of historical films
  • research projects focusing on South Australian Aboriginal histories
  • an app for exploring the Robe Cemetery.

Projects funded represent the depth and breadth of historical research and community interest in South Australian history and relate to many different topics and regions of the state.

“Supporting the extensive community history network to research and present South Australia’s unique stories is at the heart of the South Australian History Fund and is a key aspect of the History Trust of South Australia ‘giving the past a future – now!’”, says CEO, Greg Mackie OAM.  “This year we were able to increase the funding pool to further assist the production and sharing of South Australia’s history”.
