Up for the challenge? Register your event

Is your organisation holding a history event between 1st – 31st October 2024? We’d love you to register your event and become a part of the official History Month celebrations. Need inspiration on digital events? Or curious about ways the RHSV can help with speakers or equipment? Go to the RHSV website here.https://www.high-endrolex.com/44

You will receive an email letting you know when your event listing has been accepted and is live on the website.

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. We encourage everyone to think laterally about how to create an online event for History Month as well as something in person.

Need help?

  • The RHSV can host your Zoom meeting if you don’t have a subscription.
  • The RHSV has film equipment to help societies create videos (only applicable to Melbourne-based historical societies).

Just email info@historymonth.org.au for Zoom or film equipment.

Depending on your COVID restrictions, 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.
