Description of charity’s activities and outcomes
In 2012-2013, the Councils activities encouraged greater understanding and awareness of history.For general audiences, the Council organised its Annual Lecture (11 Sep 2012) with support from the State Library of Victoria. Journalist and author Gideon Haigh spoke about the origins and impact of World Series Cricket, lecturing on 1977 and all that: Crickets revolution as event, history and drama to an appreciative audience of over 100 people.For higher education and general audiences, the Council collaborated with Monash University and the State Library of Victoria on "Making Public Histories", a seminar series led by academic and professional historians. The seminars were: The Founders & Survivors Project: Australian life courses 1803-1920: Digital History Making (20 Sep 2012); Anzac Memories Revisited: family history and Australian war remembrance (18 Apr 2013); and Apologising for the Past (9 May 2013).For schools, the Council delivered the History Roadshow to Year 11 and 12 VCE students and their teachers in regional Victoria. A grant from the state Department of Education and Early Childhood Development through its Strategic Partnerships Program supported the program so that the only cost to schools was their transport to the venue. With the involvement of leading historians in fields related to the students curriculum, the Roadshow visited Bendigo, Shepparton, Geelong and Ballarat regional cities that serve as hubs for large numbers of schools.
