As part of the annual Heritage Week, the NSW Office of Environment & Heritage is hosting Crowdsourcing Heritage Stories: Heritage Near Me Write-a-thon to enable members of the public to share their stories and perspectives about an item or place of local heritage significance. 

NSW OEH have partnered with a digital transformation organisation, Code for Australia to build the Heritage Near Me app. The Heritage Near Me app is a heritage tourism and storytelling app, and will also provide increased communication between the NSW Government and the heritage community. Information collected at the crowdsourcing event will contribute to the content of the Heritage Near Me app.

The Heritage Near Me team would like to invite any interested participants to attend either our online or Sydney events, by following the link below to register.

The event launches on Saturday 16th April and runs for the duration of Heritage Week, closing Sunday 24th April. The event launch will take place in Sydney at the Justice & Police Museum, Circular Quay, between 10am and 3pm, and will give the local community their first chance to contribute their stories and meet the Heritage Near Me team. The online event will continue from this Saturday up until the end of Heritage Week. People are encouraged to share as many stories as they wish during this time and can do so via the link they’ll receive upon registering for the event. 

More information about the Heritage Near Me program can be found on the website. If you’d like additional information about this event, please don’t hesitate to ask the team by emailing
