Victoria’s Historical Themes

A Framework of Historical Themes has been developed to increase awareness and appreciation of the State’s diverse heritage. The Framework's development was overseen by both the Victorian Aboriginal Heritage Council and the Heritage Council of Victoria.

The Framework aims to ensure that objects, places and events can be understood, assessed and presented within the context of a broad theme, rather than as singular items of interest.

As a case study, we have mapped the stories and objects in Culture Victoria to the Themes. Stories appear within a theme if they contain an object that is relevant to that theme.

We are interested in feedback on this case study. If you have any comments, please Contact Us.

The Framework of Historical Themes relates to the Australian Heritage Council’s Australian Historic Themes.
