|THE BOB HAWKE PRIME MINISTERIAL CENTRE|
DEPARTMENT STORES: MORE THAN SHOPPING PANEL DISCUSSION
Thursday 4 May 2023, 6.00pm – 7.15pm
Department stores have been prominent buildings in our urban environment not only for shopping but for the opportunities for social interaction they provided. Many South Australians recall the shop window displays, art galleries, community events, and cafeteria-style dining areas within the stores.
Join us for a Panel Discussion with University of South Australia’s experts as they discuss the history of department stores and shopping in South Australia. Planning historian Dr Louise Bird will explore suburban shopping centres, Architectural historian Dr James Curry will uncover luxury and lifestyle, and Curator of the Architecture Museum Dr Julie Collins will discuss the architectural design of department stores.
Register to attend this event either in-person and live in the venue or to watch the live-stream online.
