21 community groups and individual authors and researchers have been granted funding through History SA’s annual South Australian History Fund (SAHF). Each year the SAHF supports a wide range of projects on a great diversity of historical topics. Topics included in grants this year include Aboriginal history in Campbelltown, politician Tom Price, mapping tuberculosis mortality in early twentieth century Adelaide and the Coober Pedy Outback Open Air Cinema. A full list of grant recipients can be accessed here.
Once again this year the demand on the SAHF was very high. History SA received 68 applications totalling $168,281 for the $35,000 available in the fund.
The SAHF grant fund opens in June/July each year.
