This is the first Museums Victoria Lecture Series event for 2021 and the first presentation of a three part sub-series, where we look at and try to understand the complex experience of bushfire in south eastern Australia. 

There is a small connection fee of $5 per household.  You can book via the Ticket purchase URL provided, or find out more about our presenters etc., via the following link: .

Last year was a great series and we hope to have you along for this one.


Best wishes from the MV Lecture Series team.

The HCV was formed as an advisory body in 2001 and incorporated in 2003. It comprises representatives from cultural and educational institutions and heritage bodies; history teachers and curriculum advisors; academic and professional historians; and local, Indigenous, community and specialist history organisations.

As the peak body for history, the HCV has both ‘outward-looking’ roles (including advocacy and representation to government and the wider community, consultation, community education, and networking with allied interest groups) and ‘inward-looking’ roles (including member support, information dissemination, and networking between members).
