Welcome to the History Council of NSW
Our vision is to ensure that history, in all its diverse forms, is an important part of the cultural life of the people and communities of New South Wales.
We aim to achieve this by pursuing our goals in the five key areas: advocacy, awareness, diversity, excellence and outreach.
History Week 2017: Pop!
Now in it’s 20th year and our flagship event, History Week, engages a range of audiences by showcasing the rich, diverse history being produced by organisations and individuals across New South Wales.
History Week 2017 invites members to celebrate popular culture across the decades, investigate its construction and analyse its impact on communities and individuals.
