The History Council of New South Wales invites you to attend History Week 2010 to be held 4-12 September 2010.

History Week is the state’s annual festival of history. An initiative of the History Council of New South Wales, it is now in its 14th year. With over 150 events across the state, History Week gives a voice to our past and aims to promote the fact that history is exciting, interesting, relevant and all around us.

During History Week, community groups, local councils, libraries, archives, museums, universities, cultural institutions, professional and amateur historians across New South Wales open their doors to present the latest in today’s historical research Рfascinating stories, artifacts and experiences about both our past and ourselves today.

Events include talks, walks, exhibitions, workshops, performances and more.

The official theme for this year is Faces in the Street. Join in History Week 2010 for a walk down the streets of the past and into the lives of those you pass. Explore the biographies of our leaders, those who shaped our world and the worlds of lesser known identities.

More information, including the “when and where” for each event can be found on the History Council of New South Wales’ website.
