The Melbourne Women’s Walking Club has won the Victorian Community History Award for best collaborative community history for their book Still on Track: 100 Years of the Melbourne Women’s Walking Club. Their award was presented at a ceremony held recently at the Arts Centre Melbourne. The judges said:
“Still on Track: 100 Years of the Melbourne Women’s Walking Club is an engaging read. Well-presented, blending stories from the past and present of the club, Still on Track traces landmarks in the club’s history and explores what the club has meant to members over the decades. It is inclusive of many voices and, while charting a long history, explores the relevance of the club to its members today. Many collaborators have combined to produce this exemplary people-centred and participatory history which shows the social significance of the club.”
Congratulations to all involved in the production of this wonderful publication.
