History Week was initiated by the History Council of NSW to showcase the rich, diverse history being produced by organisations and individuals across the state. With over 100 events across NSW, History Week is about celebrating the best in community and professional history, highlighting its role in our cultural life and inviting people to get involved.
The theme this year is Threads: They wore what?!
Long before the fashionistas of today decided the look, dress was an important element of human expression. From status to style, culture to professional identity, clothes have defined us. History Week 2012 will explore the history of threads to unpick the meaning behind the past’s wardrobes.
When: 8-16 September
