Tickets are now available for two fantastic OHV training opportunities:

Bookings are open for OHV’s in-person beginners training session Remember to Press Record: Getting Started with Oral History on the 24th March 2024 at the North Melbourne Library.

Miranda and Nicolette understand that starting an oral history project can be daunting. They want to equip you with the essentials, from project documentation like consent forms, to the technology you need (yes they include simple and free options!), and the must-do interview techniques.

Bookings are also open for the OHV advanced training session Conducting oral history interviews on sensitive or painful subjects, Saturday 16 March 2024, 9.30am-4.00pm, online via Zoom.

This OHV online Advanced Workshop by two of Australia’s most experienced oral history trainers will consider: the personal and ethical responsibilities of the oral historian; the range of ways in which interviews might generate difficult or painful remembering; minimising risk in project planning and communication; issues and approaches for interviewing on sensitive subjects and responding to difficult remembering; the safety of the interviewee and interviewer; and responsibilities and options after the interview.
