Welcome to the History Council of NSW
Our vision is to ensure that history, in all its diverse forms, is an important part of the cultural life of the people and communities of New South Wales.
We aim to achieve this by pursuing our goals in the five key areas: advocacy, awareness, diversity, excellence and outreach.
History Week 2017: Pop!
Now in its 20th year and our flagship event, History Week, engages a range of audiences by showcasing the rich, diverse history being produced by organisations and individuals across New South Wales.
History Week 2017 featured over 80 events across the state from 2 to 10 September. The History Council of NSW would like to thank its members, supporters and partners for participating. If you attended a History Week event, let us know your thoughts.
Order and Disorder: Madness in Penal NSW
Sat 25 Nov, 2pm | Moruya Museum, 85 Campbell St, Moruya | FREE
Madness was a feature of the colony of New South Wales from the start: sailors, convicts, soldiers, and free men and women. But how did they manage this madness? And what effect did that have on colonial society?
Join the Moruya and District Historical Society as they host Dr James Dunk for this Speaker Connect talk.
