If you're an organisation wishing to promote our state's history, its stories and collections, register now for the South Australia's History Festival 2020.

From museums, archives, community and cultural organisations to universities, libraries and schools as well as churches, galleries, businesses, cemeteries, gardens, government agencies and owners of heritage places, if your community has a story to tell, this is the perfect opportunity to share it.

Taking place from May 1 to 31, 2020, the History Festival is exploring the theme of 'change'.

From political change to social change.

Changing places, changing minds, changing hearts. Change for the better; change for the worse; on a big or a small scale, and everything in between.

The world around us is constantly undergoing change. Change is also a major thread that runs through the histories we share.

The 2019 History Festival program included 695 events across the state presented by approximately 408 event organisers and a total of 158,500 attendances.

History Trust of South Australia Chief Executive, Greg Mackie said he was thrilled to witness the momentum of the Festival in recent years.

"The History Festival program provides an opportunity for all South Australian's to share their passion for history, for collecting and for our unique heritage," Mr Mackie said.

"The History Festival has become a fixture on the calendar in May, and I can't wait to see what new events and experiences our presenters organise for 2020."

"History is for everyone. It connects people across time and space and helps us all to develop a better understanding of ourselves and our place in the world."

He said South Australia's History Festival was an opportunity for our communities to come together and share the narratives of the past that have helped to shape who we are today.

All events are listed on the History Festival website and in the printed program which will be distributed state-wide through The Advertiser in April.
