It is an attempt to simulate, or re-enact life, in another time, a very tangible and visual interpretation of aspects of social heritage.
It is a three-dimensional history lesson that is entertaining as well as educational; combining the art form of dramatic performance and the discipline of historic research, it is not a medium which accepts the mythology of the past.
Widely used throughout Europe, the United Kingdom and North America as an integral form of historic interpretation, its promotion as a recognised method of preserving elements of our cultural heritage is a significant objective for Queensland Living History Federation Inc.
The Queensland Living History Federation - or QLHF - is an organisation formed to represent the interests of Living Historian and Reenactor groups in Queensland. Each group still retains its own separate character, memberships and operations, the Federation is simply a common forum.It was formed in 1997 and is still going 14 years later with a membership of over 700 who make up over 55 member groups. These groups re-enact everything from Ancient Rome to the Vietnam War, and everything in between.
Membership of Queensland Living History Federation is based on high standards of safety, authenticity, research and performance.
