History is not only about things that happened long ago. It is happening here and now and we are all part of it. Sometimes history is about small things – the everyday things we take for granted. At other times it is about the big events that change communities in dramatic ways and that live on in a community’s memory for generations.
Over the course of the SA bushfires, South Australians came together on social media. We shared emergency information, practical support, photos and experiences. History as it Happens pulls together our community’s response to these tragic events.
We invite you to share photos, stories, and footage here or on our History SA facebook page. We are also keen to collect physical objects that show the impact of the fires.
