Closing date: Tuesday 9 August 2022
The theme for History Week 2022 is 'Hands-on History'. For History Week 2022 we invite you to roll up your sleeves and get your 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 you 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. You are encouraged to tell these stories through Histories of particular interest to you. We encourage variety and diversity.
Your event/s can be held online, in person or in a mixed hybrid model.
