Welcome to Oral History Queensland

Oral History Australia [OHA] is a non-profit body whose members practice and promote oral history.  The aims of OHA are:
.

  • promote discussion and training on all aspects of the methodology and ethical practices of oral history as a discipline and a means of gathering and preserving social and cultural history
  • foster preservation access and use of oral history collections
  • support State and Territory Oral History associations
  • provide a national voice on all aspects of oral history, and
  • link Australian oral historians to the international oral history movement.
These aims are shared by each state entity.
 
There are now associations in each state.  ACT is incorporated into NSW Branch.  NT is incorporated into SA Branch.
Find out more about other branches here.
