Jane James Talk 'From Pussia with Love'

HAHNDORF ACADEMY INVITES YOU TO

 ADDING VALUE TO YOUR BUSINESS From Prussia with Love ……                         

 the relevance to customers and visitors to the Adelaide Hills

 Speaker: Emeritus Professor Jane James

Thursday May 24 at 6pm With drinks and nibbles

In the Adelaide Hills, tangible heritage came from Prussia, with love... and that heritage was added to the natural landscape of the Hills that evolved over 800 million years, where the topography supports animals and plants unique to this southern continent, in a place where you can see wildlife, in the wild.

The earliest cultural stories are those of the Aboriginal Peramangk people who have lived and traded through the Adelaide Hills for thousands of years. The ‘discovery’ of Australia in the 1800’s began a European impact that led to a cultural landscape influenced initially by the English and French, followed by ‘push’ and ‘pull’ migration from Prussia in the mid-1800’s.

Visitors to the Adelaide Hills will see evidence from those Prussians who came, with love - none more so than in Hahndorf.

Bio of presenter Emeritus Professor Jane James: Jane will show how integrated regional interpretation plans for the Adelaide Hills and for the history and heritage of Hahndorf results in memorable visitor experiences, substantial community pride and positive economic impact. Emeritus Professor Jane James ran the award-winning tourism degrees at Flinders University, South Australia for 17 years. As an interpretation consultant, she specialises in           interpretive planning and training, working with tourism, heritage curators, natural area managers and cellar doors to identify their point of difference and their target markets and then telling their story - really well.

Jane has been a Board member of the South Australian Tourism Commission, Chair of the National Parks and Wildlife Council, a Member of the State Heritage Council, and Deputy Presiding Member of the Adelaide Parklands Authority. Jane was appointed to Hahndorf Academy Board in 2016.

Silvia Stansfield showcases her work from her early years to the present day, this exhibition is a celebration of her career as a ceramicist where you can experience her stories and incredible talent.

“Clay became a canvas and my hands and mind came together to express my ideas. It is a full life to explore clay and all of its possibilities. I make many objects with different purposes. From the bowl thrown on the wheel, to the enjoyment of exploring hand building to develop larger forms, all incorporating personal experiences of landscapes, villages, streets and people”. Silvia Stansfield

Through the evocative ceramics of Silvia Ines Stansfield, we are taken on an intimate journey through an extraordinary life. Embedded within her lifelong work are memoirs of her travels, encounters with inspirational people, her love of nature and most importantly, the optimism and joy she has for life.

Silvia was born in the south of Chile and came to Australia in 1969and throughout her career Silvia has continually developed her work, exhibiting extensively in solo and group exhibitions in Australia and internationally. She has generously shared her skills and knowledge with other artists, schools and community workshops, including teaching ceramics for twelve years at Tauondi Aboriginal Community College in Port Adelaide.
