About History Week - 2-10 September 2017
History Week 2017 seeks to examine, unravel and understand Australian ‘popular culture’. As History Week enters its 20th year, History Council of NSW members are invited to celebrate popular culture across the decades, to investigate its construction and analyse its impact on communities and individuals.
With over 100 events across NSW, History Week is about celebrating the best in community and professional history, highlighting its role in our cultural life and inviting people to get involved.
During History Week, community groups, local councils, libraries, archives, museums, universities, cultural institutions, professional and amateur historians across NSW open their doors to present the latest in today’s historical research – fascinating stories, artefacts and experiences about both our past and ourselves today.
Some of this year’s events include:
- Passion for Fashion: 60’s Style Exhibition - Port Macquarie Museum
- Castaways: Reunion and Retrospective – Sea Acres
- The Story of the Wauchope Regents Theatre – Wauchope District Historical Society
- Historical Courthouse & Innes Ruins: A Digital Retrospective – Port Macquarie Library
- Secrets of Laurieton: Historic Walking Tour – Camden Haven Historical Society
- Historic Roto House – NPWS
- The Wollongbar Experience – Mid North Coast Maritime Museum
