History@Work is made up of a thriving team of historians. We bring a wide range of experiences and expertise to our projects, and are passionate about community history in its many forms. We love diving into your collections of paper, images or material culture to help you with significance assessments, conservation, and story telling. Extracting social and architectural history from primary records is immensely satisfying and helps us to tell the history and heritage of your home or building. While researching and writing the history of your organisation, school, community or family is just the sort of exciting challenge we relish. We do all this through the lens of oral, digital or written history formats and we offer a range of innovative methodologies to ensure the final result is scholarly, appealing, engaging and accessible.

Our current projects include:

An eBook and website history of the Victorian Teachers' Union

Editing and book publication of a series of interviews on mentoring

'Talking Yarra' - City of Yarra oral history project

Interpretive and coffee table history book of the Jaques Richmond redevelopment site

History of the Victorian Heritage Register listed Goods Shed #5, Northbank

Cultural heritage significance assessments of the Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria and Kew Historical society
