At the SA Mental Health Commission we know that opportunities to connect with others and learn something new whilst out and about in our community are good for our wellbeing. The History Festival offers a unique opportunity to do just that in an extraordinary range of places, spaces and subject areas.
Here’s some of our staff’s top picks:
Rachel: Day Glo, Go-Go and Roller Disco 2: The Return of Skateline https://historyfestival.sa.gov.au/33838 'WHY? takes me back to the 1980’s roller skating down at Glenelg in my fancy disco clothes and big, big hair!'
Julia: 'My fave so far is the release of the book A spanner in the works about Miss Alice Anderson's garage – did you know you can see a replica of Miss Anderson’s workshop at the National Motor Museum in Birdwood?' https://historyfestival.sa.gov.au/33946
Amelia: 'The town where I grew up!' Going down the street: Shopping in Strathalbyn 40 – 70 years ago https://historyfestival.sa.gov.au/33427
Emma: 'I take my baking seriously so of course you need to be attired appropriately!' The Embroiderers’ Guild Aprons: Fun, Function and Formality. https://historyfestival.sa.gov.au/33656
