The History Council of NSW aims 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 provide services and programs, which aim to build capacity within the history sector and showcase the importance of history.
We focus on five key areas: awareness, diversity, excellence, advocacy and outreach.
Our objectives are to:
- Develop a relevant, vibrant and accessible professional development program for our members and audiences across New South Wales;
- Promote communication within the history sector and provide opportunities for collaboration;
- Provide a forum for identifying and responding to issues of relevance to the practice of history;
- Celebrate the diversity of and foster excellence in historical practice.
