Upcoming Workshops

Oral History Basics Workshop

Oral History Queensland is holding a face-to-face workshop on 25 March 2023 at 12 Payne Street, Auchenflower.  The workshop will be run by OHQ President Elisabeth Gondwe who has a Master of Arts in Anthropology and Archaeology from James Cook University.  Elisabeth has worked as an oral historian for 30 years and brings a strong oral history focus to her role as the curator at the North Stradbroke Island Museum on Minjerribah.  She has designed and delivered many community oral history projects.

This is an introductory workshop and would suit people who are commencing an oral history project.  It will provide an overview of an oral history project, ethics and permissions, an introduction to interview techniques and recording, file management and transcribing.  Anyone with an interest in oral history, family and local histories would benefit from this workshop.  Find out more about the workshop and registration here.


We had no “face to face” workshops in 2020 due to COVID-19.

We had no workshops in 2019 as we concentrated our efforts on the National Conference, held in Brisbane in October 2019.
