HistoryAtWork advocates for history and heritage to be meaningful in people’s lives. We work with communities, places and collections to tell the stories that matter.

Communities

Knowing the stories that matter to a community gives its people a place in their own history, and enables them to recognise its significance to their lives. 

Researching and presenting the history of your neighbourhood, institution, profession, organisation, school, community, family, or just yourself, is the sort of exciting challenge we relish.

Places

Understanding places can help us appreciate their relationship to our lives today, and to the world around us. 

Extracting social and architectural history from primary records and applying honest, engaging interpretation to your favourite house, building, precinct, region or landscape is something we love to do.

Collections

Exploring the breadth and depth of your collections can reveal their interpretive potential for custodians and the broader community alike.

Applying sound principles and methodologies to help you with collection management, significance assessments, conservation and interpretation is immensely satisfying.
