Kerry Packer Civic Gallery - booking conditions

Use of the Gallery is by approved entities and is always at the discretion of the Director. The Kerry Packer Civic Gallery is NOT available for external conference bookings lasting several days. Any conference events planned for this space MUST have a UniSA partner who takes responsibility for on-site liaison.  If you have any queries, please contact Louise Carnell on 08 8302 0371 or louise.carnell@unisa.edu.au.

Gallery usage

The Gallery is provided courtesy of the Hawke Centre for events and exhibitions that link the University to the wider community, and for groups whose not-for-profit work directly benefits the community at large.  We are pleased that you have identified it as suitable for your purpose and we hope you will enjoy this beautiful, stylish, endowed space which has been developed, and is maintained by the Hawke Centre for worthy uses, and the enjoyment of a wide group of visitors.


Event acknowledgements must include the following statement: We acknowledge the support of the Hawke Centre in making the Kerry Packer Civic Gallery available for our function/event/launch.


Exhibition displays will vary in size and format.  Generally they will take up the northern section of the Gallery, but in some cases will extend the full length of the Gallery. 

Audiovisual equipment available

Depending on the requirements of the exhibition on show in the Gallery, you may be able to use the data projector or plasma screens for function visuals.  Please check prior to booking the space. 

Visual presentations must be forwarded to louise.carnell@unisa.edu.au at least 5 working days prior to your event.  All presentations should be designed as a continuously loop with powerpoint slides created in a .ppt format.  Laptop control, for manual slide advancing (projector only), and any microphone/sound requirements must be arranged via IT Help

Limited fonts are available through the panels - refer to the attached Digital Signage Content for details.  We cannot guarantee your presentation will be suitable for the screens in the Gallery and therefore sufficient notice is required for testing.  Videos may be shown, and must be in a .wmv format and less than 100MB size.


Emergency Evacuation

Please ensure organisers/presenters are made aware of the emergency evacuation procedures for the Hawke Building.  On hearing the fire alarm the building must be evacuated immediately via the fire exits on level 3.  These are located via the Samstag Museum or through the Allan Scott Auditorium.   DO NOT use the lifts or central stairway in an emergency evacuation.

Access and security

The University is committed to providing and maintaining a safe and healthy environment for staff, students, and visitors, and as such activities or functions held on campus will be undertaken in compliance with the University's By-laws and Occupational Health Safety and Welfare procedures.
