Crowdsourcing heritage stories

As part of the annual Heritage Week, the NSW Office of Environment and 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.
Heritage Near Me, a NSW Government initiative to implement transformational change to protect, share and celebrate local heritage in NSW, has 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. It will provide for increased communication between the NSW Government and the heritage community. Information collected at the write-a-thon will contribute to the content of the Heritage Near Me app.
