University of South Australia proud sponsor of WOMADelaide's Planet Talks
The University of South Australia is proud to be the sole education partner for WOMADelaide Planet Talks program.
From the 10 - 13 March 2017 WOMADelaide brought together more than 500 artists and speakers from 25 countries, and the Planet Talks program took fans’ experiences beyond the sounds, sights and flavours of this iconic outdoor event to friendly environmental debate.
With a stimulating line up of artists and speakers in six thought-provoking panel discussions over three days, the Planet Talks program explored new ideas and discovered how we can live more sustainably and harmoniously on our planet.
As a University committed to innovative, enterprising and industry relevant research, we believe in the power of education, debate and discussion. This is why we sponsor this important event.

UniSA, T-Bar and ABC Radio T bar
UniSA along with T-Bar and ABC Radio hosted the UniSA T bar again in 2017. Here festival goers enjoyed a cup of hot or ice tea and coffee, saw first-hand ABC Radio interviews, learnt about UniSA's sustainability research, bought some interesting art, relaxed and listened to some music and even charged their mobile phone on our solar phone charging station.
The UniSA T bar featured furniture and solar phone charging stations designed by UniSA industrial design students. Find out more about the student projects in the below video.
