I Am an Activist: The Making of an Australian Heritage Activist

As a 27-year old migrant from the USA, Professor Norman Etherington fell in love with Adelaide’s historic streetscapes and realised that steps had to be taken to preserve them from threatening forces of development.

This led to a lifelong involvement with Australian history and heritage, including serving as inaugural Chair of the Constitutional Museum Trust, then the History Trust of South Australia, membership of the Lord Mayor’s Heritage Advisory Committee and the Adelaide City Council, culminating in service as President of the National Trust of SA from 2012-2017.

I am an Activist – a series of floor talks by South Australian activists during South Australia’s History Festival 2018.

Meet at the entrance of the Centre of Democracy a few minutes before.
