People's Tours of Local History

A Local History Grant helped 3CR to create audio tours of Melbourne’s social, activist and cultural local history. The tours are fact-based but also very personal, with tour guides describing why certain historical places, events and times have special meaning for them. The tours were also conducted as live walks with an audience as part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival 2009.

The tours were broadcast on 3CR and are on line at the People's Tour website.

3CR volunteer Jane Curtis initiated the project. Nicole Hurtubise was the audio technician.
