Pivotal Events Projects

Projects Index

A community's  heritage can be expressed through a careful analysis of Places, People and Events. The Historic Resources Branch has developed Pivotal Events Projects as the final component of the three core collections that, along with Special places and Notable People, will help communties protect and use their heritage resources  to best advantage.  I piloted the first Pivotal Events Project in Rivers / Daly in 2010, and we have followed that up with a second project in Hartney.

With local history volumes as our guide, and with previous heritage projects and local museums as  a resouce, we create a comprehensive illustrated timeline that puts a community's pivotal events into context and renders them in an entertaining and accessible fashion.
