The conference will be held at Adelaide Oval, on land known as Tarntanya – the red kangaroo place in the Kaurna language.
The Adelaide Oval is situated on the northern side of the Riverbank Precinct between the city centre and North Adelaide. The oval dates back to 1871 and has been extensively redeveloped in recent years. The conference rooms have spectacular views of both the oval, the city and the river.

Adelaide is a designed city, in a designed State – the vision of British social and political reformers wanting to create a utopian settlement with freedom of religion. The province was established in 1836.

2019 is the centenary year of State Records South Australia. It was the first government archive, and appointed the first government archivists, in Australia.
Access between the oval and city is via a footbridge over the Torrens River, leading you directly to North Terrace, to both the train station and to the cultural institutions – Art Gallery of South Australia, the South Australian Museum, State Library of South Australia, Centre of Democracy, MOD (Museum of Discovery at UniSA).
There are many accommodation options available in the city or in North Adelaide – a 10 minute walk from the oval.

The painting represents people connecting and linking, going around communities talking, sharing, spreading stories and messages.
