Commission a History
Professional historians can be commissioned to investigate anything from community and business histories to conducting oral history surveys, writing heritage management plans or creating an exhibition.
PHA NSW & ACT can provide practical advice on how to commission a history and put you in contact with members who are consultant historians. We can help match you to an historian with expertise or a special interest in your topic.
Before commissioning a history it is important to consider:
- What is the subject of the work? What historical time frame will it cover?
- What format will the history take? Will it be a book, website, exhibition or something else?
- Who is the audience?
- What is the budget for the project?
- What resources are available? Do you have an archive or people available for interview?
