History Festival : Rethinking the Adelaide Plan

The plan of the City of Adelaide is celebrated by many as one of the special and distinctive aspects of our state’s capital. A hand-drawn version dated 1837 in the Migration Museum’s collection is signed by Robert Thomas. But who designed it? And what did the imposition of a colonial plan on Tarndanya mean for the Kaurna people? This panel discussion will feature a range of speakers and perspectives, with time for questions and audience contributions.

$10 per person. Bookings essential via Eventbrite

Venue: Hetzel Lecture Theatre, State Library of South Australia, North Tce, Adelaide
