The History Council of Victoria Incorporated (HCV) is the peak body for history in the Australian state of Victoria. Its vision is to connect Victorians with history and to inspire engagement with the past, their identity and the world today.

The HCV was formed as an advisory body in 2001 and incorporated in 2003. It comprises representatives from cultural institutions and heritage bodies; history teachers and curriculum advisors; academic and professional historians; and local, Indigenous, community and specialist history organisations.

The HCV delivers a number of accessible and well-received history-focused initiatives. These include:

  • History Roadshow
    This program tours regional Victoria to deliver curriculum enrichment sessions for VCE history students and teachers. The program is funded by the Strategic Partnership Program of the state government’s Department of Education and Training. The itinerary for 2018 will be delivered in August and September.
  • Making Public Histories
    This seminar series explores issues and approaches in making public histories. The program for 2018 is being offered jointly by HCV, Monash University and the Old Treasury Building, with sponsorship from the School of Philosophical, Historical and International Studies at Monash University and also from Monash University Publishing.
  • Annual Lecture
    Since 2004, the lecture has been delivered by eminent and respected authorities. The 2018 lecture was delivered in Melbourne on 19 April by Professor David Christian of Macquarie University.
  • Projects such as Drought Stories (a spoken and visual history of recent drought in Victoria, recording the experience of drought-affected communities up to 2010) and One Place, Many Stories (a free online resource designed for teachers and middle to upper primary students as a way of engaging children in the history of Victoria).
    Since 2015, the HCV has been pleased to sponsor the Years 9 and 10 category of the Historical Fiction Competition organised by the History Teachers’ Association of Victoria.
