About History Week

Now in it's 19th year, History Week is a significant event that engages local communities on the NSW cultural calendar. Each year members of the History Council of NSW collaborate to host events that explore a particular theme. From talks to exhibitions, tours to online engagement, there is something for everyone. 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.
