Social Capital Residencies

Adelaide’s highly acclaimed Thinkers in Residence Program returns in 2017, now under the auspices of the Don Dunstan Foundation.

The Don Dunstan Foundation is re-launching the Adelaide Thinkers in Residence program with a series of residencies focused on growing the social economy -  the fastest growing part of South Australia’s economy.

During the next two years, these Residencies will welcome some of the world’s most prominent experts to Adelaide to help us re-design the social innovation ecosystem so that the private, public and not-for profit sectors are all helping to grow the economy and do good at the same time.  The goal is to use business model innovation to help break down the silos between the business and social innovation ecosystems and ultimately help position South Australia as the 'social capital' of our region.
