Is your organisation holding a history event during the week of the 13 – 20 October 2019? If you answered yes, then we’d love you to register your event and become a part of the official History Week celebrations.
We will include your event in the 2019 History Week calendar, provide you with a copy of the History Week logo and we’ll promote History Week across Victoria and in your local community.
And help spread the word! Speak to your local school, newspaper, radio station and community groups and invite them to become involved with and promote History Week 2019.
Your event can be anything that is history related: a guided walk, a talk, a lecture, a film or slide night, a storytelling night, your monthly meeting, an exhibition, an open day, a launch, a display, a history bookclub … be inventive.
Engage with your local school and library or your local footy club or CFA, get your local cafe to run a nostalgic WWI menu, ask your community to allow your society to scan their photos, get your local hairdresser to run a masterclass in how to create 1940s hair-dos, get the local choir to do an evening of bush ballads, start a Facebook competition on the best recipes from the depression … there is no limit to ways in which you and your community can engage in history.
The History Teachers Association of Victoria has a great list on their website of ways to get involved with schools
Please complete the form below to submit your event details to the History Week events team for review. You will receive an email letting you know when your event listing has been accepted and is live on the website.
