AHA National Cultural Policy Submission 2022

The AHA has submitted a document to the National Cultural Policy review. The submission seeks to raise the profile of history and the GLAM sector – galleries, libraries, archives and museums – in the formulation of Australia’s cultural policy. History plays a crucial role in defining our sense of national selfhood, and our libraries, archives and museums are fundamental to the preservation, collection and presentation of Australian histories and stories. The submission argues that a government serious about implementing a cultural policy for the future must make space for history and historians in the formulation of that policy. It also makes a number of recommendations. The full submission can be found here.
