Thematic Study Project

Proposals are sought from consultant historians with a well developed knowledge of Western Australian history and experience in the application of the Australian Historic Themes Framework to the exploration and understanding of heritage places.

The National Trust manages a portfolio of heritage places that have been built over decades on an opportunistic basis rather than as a carefully considered collection. Regardless, there are common threads that link many of these places together, some obvious and some more subtle. Until now the connections between them and the opportunities they present have not been formally considered.

This project will assess how these places can be considered in a thematic context rather than as singular items of interest and within the context of the history of Western Australia.
