As we have done for all of our 2020 lectures, each event will be brought to you via Zoom Webinar.

Lectures will continue to be free, but you will need to register to obtain your Zoom link.

The link provided under 'Tickets' (below) will take you to the Melbourne Museum page to find out what is coming up and when, as well as to register for each lecture.  Videos of our past lectures can also be found in this location.

Our Collecting the Curve lectures kick off on September 16. We hope you can join us as our experts bring you the work-in-progress documenting the pandemic in Victoria for the state heritage collection. What are they collecting and why? How are they collecting? What are the complications of documenting this constantly changing and evolving situation?

We look forward to your attendance.

Further updates will be pasted here as time rolls on.

Best wishes from the Lecture Conveners and Project Support

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).
