Our Chinese Past awarded $5000 Heritage Council of NSW grant

We are very excited to announce that Our Chinese Past has been awarded a $5000 Heritage Council of NSW grant to photograph, digitise, translate and research Chinese-language inscriptions on artefacts from historical Chinese temples in museums in New England and North West New South Wales. The grant was awarded under the Small Grants Program for Local History and Archives, administered by the Royal Australian Historical Society on behalf of the New South Wales government. Phew, got that out! In announcing the awards, Royal Australian Historical Society President Christine Yeats said, “History matters and it doesn’t have to be on a global or national scale to be important.” Hear Hear!
