History Week 2020 – Online!
(5th to the 13th of September 2020)
In 2019 the combined Australian History Councils launched the Value of History Statement and in 2020 the HCNSW 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!

Speaker Connect 2020 – now Online!
Did you know that we have now moved our Speaker Connect program online? That means that our Speakers can make presentations from the comfort and safety of their own homes, and Hosts can still host their sessions via electronic means (eg Zoom) and reach a wide audience.
It’s a great opportunity for our Members to undertake a paid speaking engagement, and for Host Member organisations to receive a speaker from the HCNSW at no cost to you.
Visit our Speaker Connect page to find out more about the program and how to apply to be a Speaker or Host (Members only).
