• Australian memory of the World

    May 2, 2013

In May 2013 Adelaide will host two events that showcase the Australian Memory of the World register, a UNESCO program that works to preserve and promote documentary heritage in Australia. Come along to a workshop led by Roslyn Russell, Chair of the International Advisory Committee of Memory of the World and find out what the manuscripts relating to the Mabo case and the 1906 film The Story of the Kelly Gang have in common – and whether there are items in your collection that could be inscribed on the register. The workshop is presented by the Australian Memory of the World Program and History SA. Tuesday 14 May, 3.30 – 5.30 pm, Migration Museum chapel, Migration Museum, 82 Kintore Avenue, Adelaide. To book: mpaul@history.sa.gov.au

That evening, you can join distinguished guests at the 2013 Australian Memory of the World inscription ceremony, where the newest collections to be included on the register will be announced. Guest speaker Dr Jared Thomas will give an Indigenous perspective on documentary heritage, and light refreshments will be served. Tuesday 14 May, 6.15 for 6.30, Mortlock Chamber, State Library of South Australia, North Terrace, Adelaide. To book: burrows.steve@slsa.sa.gov.au
