AMOHG is an independent, voluntary association of professional media practitioners, oral historians, academics, archivists, journalists, critics, reviewers and others. The Group aims to encourage and conduct oral histories of practitioners in audiovisual media and those with a significant memory or knowledge of the social histories, operations, cultures and sub-cultures of audiovisual media production and reception.
Oral histories are the recorded, unedited and preserved recollections of ordinary people: their lives, their work, their experiences. Oral History Australia has a good definition.
The Group’s foremost aim is to encourage and conduct oral histories of Australian practitioners in audiovisual media.
