History Week 2020 Theme Announced!
On behalf of the History Council of New South Wales, I am proud to announce our History Week 2020 theme:
In 2019 the combined Australian History Councils launched the Value of History Statement.
The History Week theme for 2020 invites our members to share with their communities why history matters to them. From telling stories about the past to shaping our futures, the practice of history enriches our lives in so many ways.
What do you love about history?
Can history be life-changing?
Let’s shout from the rooftops why we value history!
History Week will be from the 5th to the 13th of September 2020.For more information, visit the History Week 2020 webpage.
Join Old Government House – National Trust of Australia NSW‘s curator and special guests on the fourth Thursday of the month as they take you deeper into the lives of the women who lived in, worked at or visited Old Government House.
Join Curator Anna Ridley on a tour of the exhibition, with a focus on the Vice Regal Women who lived at Old Government House.
Each month a different aspect of the lives of these women will be explored.
