Up for the challenge? Register Your Event

Is your organisation holding a history event during the month 1st – 31st October 2021? 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 

We will include your event in the 2021 History Month calendar, provide you with a copy of the History Month logo and we’ll promote History Month 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 and promote History Month 2021.

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. Because of COVID19 we plan for History Month to be mostly virtual. We may, of course, be out of lockdown, but we encourage everyone to think laterally about how to create an online event for History Month.

Need help?

  • The RHSV can host your Zoom meeting if your don’t have a subscription.
  • The RHSV has film equipment to help societies create videos (probably 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

Please complete the form below to submit your event details to the History Month 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.
