2017 RAHS Conference

Finding Lost Places, Lost People

Cowra Services Club, Cowra NSW 28th – 29th October 2017

Uncovering hidden stories helps us better understand the past and can challenge our understanding of how the present came to be. Historical societies have an important role to play in ensuring that their communities’ history does not get lost and that members of the broader community can find out about their work so that they too can learn and contribute to this history. Lost communities can be remembered and found through written archival records, photographs and voice recordings. The digital revolution is increasing accessibility to records and providing more tools to reach a wider geographical and demographical audience.

The RAHS invites you to join us at our 2017 conference in Cowra to explore these topics, learn skills that will support your history projects and enjoy opportunities to network and share histories with RAHS members and friends.
