We Value History
A not-for-profit association run for the benefit of its members, we provide services and programs, which aim to build capacity within the history sector and showcase the importance of history, and we actively seek the input of our members on our General Council, Executive and associated sub-committees.
What we do
Announcement – History Week 2022 Theme ‘Hands-on History’
For History Week 2022 we invite our members to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty!
History doesn’t only happen in archives, libraries and books. Very often we need to go out in the field and get hands-on to connect with different sources, stories and audiences. Hands-on History invites members to explore histories by or about people who do things with their hands, whether that is for work or play.
You may also like to creatively consider how you use your hands to do history; be that digging up artefacts, uncovering archives, restoring precious and everyday objects, curating exhibitions, writing and drawing, sewing, painting, even making music or a film or podcast!
We want you to re-think Hands-on History and present your ideas in History Week 2022.
