Art & Heritage Collections
The most exciting part of Art & Heritage Collections' work is the way in which the nexus between collections, art and culture, and the academic disciplines is utilised to present innovative projects to both the University and the broader community.
To celebrate NAIDOC week, Art & Heritage Collections collaborated with the University Library's Special Collections and the Discipline of Linguistics to present a display on Endangered Languages: disappearing diversity.
This was drawn from the holdings of the Library and personal collections of University academics working in this area.
A symposium discussing the same theme will be held on Thursday 9 July in the Ira Raymond Room, Barr Smith Library.
Projects such as these ensure that University collections play an important part in the cultural landscape of South Australia.
