History Trust - SA History Festival 2024 in May
Theme: “POWER”

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.
