World Heritage Day Workshop - April 18th 2008
Theme: Religious Heritage and Sacred Places
St Francis Xavier Cathedral Hall, 4 - 7pm, Wakefield St , Adelaide
An Australia ICOMOS seminar, supported by the Heritage Branch of South
Australia, is to be held at St Francis Xavier Cathedral Hall, Adelaide on
April 18th to celebrate World Heritage Day. The theme this year for
World Heritage Day is Religious Heritage and Sacred Places.
This seminar, to be held at St Francis Xavier Cathedral, will discuss
heritage issues generally related to this theme, using a case study
involving a visit to the conservation works at the Cathedral and the
building of the new sacristy.
This will be a highly practical seminar for architects and others wishing
to discuss conservation processes and include discussions on the theme as
- The proposed conservation works being undertaken at the Cathedral, in particular the use of lime
mortars in conservation. The selected mortars and their application on
the St Francis Xavier project will be discussed to explain the use of
traditional lime mortars in this project. Mortar mixes, practical
mixing and application will be demonstrated on site.
- Anthony Coupe's recent work in Champasak involving traditional building and mortar repairs in a
temple library in a World Heritage Site in Laos - a project being
supported by the Streetwise Asia Fund for Heritage Conservation.
- Adaptive reuse of redundant churches and halls, and new development associated with religious
heritage buildings with some case studies will be presented - speakers
are now being confirmed to present different case studies of local South
Australian projects. This is proposed to be an interactive session
with discussions about approaches to adaptive reuse and new
The workshop will be held at the hall adjacent to St Francis Xavier
Cathedral. There will be a charge of $15.00 for ICOMOS members, $25

World Heritage Day was created by ICOMOS (International Council of
Monuments and Sites) in 1982 and endorsed by UNESCO in 1983.
During the month of May, archives, galleries, libraries, museums,
cultural heritage sites and organisations across Australia are encouraged
to participate in MayDay - a national campaign for the protection of
cultural heritage from disaster.
MayDay aims to raise awareness about disaster preparedness and to
encourage people to perform at least one disaster-preparedness task in
May each year. There are many types of emergencies that we can be better
prepared for, from the potential impact of faulty electrical wiring in
the building next door, to bushfires, cyclones or even internal or
The MayDay concept originated with the Society of American Archivists
(SAA) in 2006. Heritage Preservation (HP) partners with the SAA to
promote MayDay and to provide some useful learning resources for American
The May/June 2007 issue of the SAA newsletter Archival Outlook contained
an article titled 'MayDay Focuses on Emergency Preparedness', which
described some of the activities undertaken by organisations across
America for their annual MayDay campaign. Please see:
. The article also welcomed the "land Down Under" to the initiative in
2007. It is the Australian committee for the Blue Shield that promotes
the MayDay concept in Australia.
What is the Blue Shield?
The Blue Shield is the cultural equivalent of the Red Cross. It is the
symbol specified in the 1954 Hague Convention for marking cultural sites
to give them protection from attack in the event of armed conflict. It is
also the name of an international committee set up in 1996 to work to
protect the world's cultural heritage threatened by wars and natural
Blue Shield Committees around the globe comprise four international
cultural heritage 'pillar' bodies -
International Council on Archives (ICA);
International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS);
International Council of Museums (ICOM); and
International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA).
In Australia, these pillar bodies are represented respectively as
follows: Council of Australasian Archives and Records Authorities
(CAARA); Australia ICOMOS; ICOM Australia; Australian Library and
Information Association (ALIA).
MayDay Australia 2008
Last year, Blue Shield Australia circulated a flier electronically
and asked that people print it and post it on notice boards to raise
awareness about disaster preparedness. The flier contained suggestions on
what people could do about being more prepared for disaster. We suggested
that one or more of the suggested steps be taken during the month of May,
whereas the American program focuses on 1 May only.
For 2008 Blue Shield Australia has arranged for a series of workshops to
be delivered through the Australian Library and Information Association
pillar body. Titled 'Disaster Planning for Cultural Collections', the
workshops will be presented by esteemed Conservator, Mr Kim Morris,
between May and September 2008 in six Australian cities. Practitioners
from any field of cultural heritage are encouraged by ALIA to attend a
workshop. Details about the workshops will be available from the Blue
Shield Australia website from 31 March 2008:
Another new item on the flier for this year encourages checking of your
organisation's 'business continuity' plan. This planning is generally
undertaken by medium to large organisations to minimize the disruption to
business from any surprise event. 'Business Continuity Awareness Week'
runs from 28 April to 2 May this year. For more information please see:
http://www.thebci.org.au/BCAW.htm, or contact Mr Les Whittet on 02
What should I do?
In 2008, people in cultural heritage organisations are once again
encouraged to print the MayDay 2008 flier and post it on a notice board
before 1 May (available at the Blue Shield Australia website from 31
Then it's just a matter of acting upon one or more of the suggested
activities. Here are some of the suggestions from this year's flier:
- If you have
a disaster plan, dust it off and make sure it's up to date or make a
timeline for developing one.
- Get to know
your local firefighters and police, and invite them to tour your
organisation and give you pointers on safety and preparedness.
the three biggest risks to your collection or heritage site.
- Meet with
the people working in the other cultural organisations in your area and
find out how you can share resources in the event of a disaster.
- Attend a

9) Seminar at Deakin University -
Tensions between local and world heritage significance: The case of
Tuesday 15 April
Presenter: Assoc Prof Andrea Witcomb, Deakin University,
Cultural Heritage Centre for Asia and the Pacific
This paper focuses on the impact of the World Heritage Listing Process
for the way in which heritage significance is defined at Fremantle Prison
in Western Australia. The attention is on the ways in which the
professional discourse focuses on the authenticity of the fabric leading,
Andrea argues, to a narrow interpretation of significance. When coupled
with the need to identify world significance it is almost inevitable that
local and perhaps more contentious aspects of the site's history are
demoted with significant implications for interpretation. The paper
finishes with some suggestions as to how the World Heritage Listing
system might be able to help in addressing these sorts of problems.
Andrea Witcomb is an Associate Professor at Deakin University in
Melbourne where she contributes to the work of the Cultural Heritage
Centre for Asia and the Pacific and the Research Institute for
Citizenship and Globalisation. She is a former curator with a background
in history and cultural studies. Her research interests range across
interpretation issues in both heritage sites and museums.Since her first
book, Re-Imagining the Museum: Beyond the Mausoleum (Routledge, 2003),
Andrea has become known for her work on contemporary approaches to
interactivity in the museum context. More recently, she has been working
on a history of the National Trust of Australia (WA). On the museum front
she is increasingly interested in how museums are responding to the
policy imperatives formed around discourses of social cohesion.
There is no entry charge and everyone is welcome

12) International Conference VSMM
2008 - Call for Papers/Participation
Digital Heritage: Our Hi-tech-STORY for the Future
Technologies to Document, Preserve, Communicate, and Prevent the
Destruction of our Fragile Cultural Heritage
October 20-26, 2008
You are kindly invited to submit a paper to the VSMM 2008 joint
conference which will provide an opportunity to exchange research
results, opinions, experiences and proposals on the best practice and
hi-tech tools from Information and Communications Technology to document,
preserve, manage and communicate Cultural Heritage (CH). The main goal of
the event is not only to illustrate the programs underway but also
excellent work wherever it is located and however it is supported, in
order to promote a common approach to the tasks of
e-documentation of World Cultural Heritage. Furthermore, regional
capacities in the area of Cultural Heritage and IT will be facilitated in
advancing their know-how through the exchange of information and
generation of new ideas and cooperation's, where the world meets the
finger prints of several ancient civilizations on earth.
To reach this ambitious goal the topics covered will include experiences
in the use of innovative recording technologies & methods and how to
take best advantage to integrate the results obtained to build up new
tools and/or experiences as well as improved methodologies for
documenting, managing and communicating CH.
The VSMM 2008 joint event will focus on interdisciplinary and multi-
disciplinary research concerning both cutting edge Cultural Heritage
Informatics and use of technology for the representation, documentation,
preservation, archiving and communication of CH knowledge. The scope
includes every phase of CH information technology: initial data
capture/digitization, information/data processing, reconstruction,
visualization and documentation as well as dissemination of results to
the scientific and cultural heritage communities and to the general
public (Multilingua, Multimedia Digital Library). We are also interested
in aspects of the wider legal and ethical responsibilities of Cultural
Heritage Informatics. Research subjects parallel the interests of VSMM,
CIPA, ISPRS and EuroMed including culturally significant monuments,
artefacts and sites as well as the activities of museums, libraries,
archives, and organizations involved with their care.

In memoriam: Hernan
Crespo Toral (1937-2008),
Honorary member of ICOMOS Ecuador and
former UNESCO Assistant Director-General for
It is with much sadness that ICOMOS Ecuador informs the ICOMOS membership
that the architect and museologist Hernan Crespo Toral, one of the most
prominent personalities in the field of conservation of Ecuadorian
cultural heritage, has died on Sunday, 23 March 2008.
Hernan Crespo Toral died at the age of 70 at his home in Quito, leaving
behind a rich legacy as a pioneer in the rescue of Ecuador's
archaeological and historical heritage, a work performed mainly as the
founder and director of the Archaeological Museum and Art Galleries of
the Banco Central del Ecuador, and later as general director of museums.
He was an authority globally recognized for his commitment to the
restoration, conservation and presentation of city centers, churches,
cloisters and civil buildings.
After 26 years of work at the Banco Central, he became the Director of
the UNESCO Regional Bureau for Culture for Latin America and the
Caribbean in Havana (Cuba), where he worked for 13 years. Later, due to
his creative force and dedication to the issues of conservation and
cultural development, he was promoted to Director of the Cultural
Department of UNESCO, with a global reach (1995-98), and as Assistant
Director-General for Culture of UNESCO (1998-2000), one of the highest
positions that an Ecuadorian has ever held in an international
In his later years, after his retirement from UNESCO, he was an
international consultant in the fields of culture and development. He was
also a coordinator for the formulation of the cooperation project between
Latin America and Europe on Cultural Heritage.
His work earned him many national and international awards, among them
the Premio Eugenio Espejo, which he received in 1990 from the Government
of Ecuador, the Order of Arts and Literature, awarded by the Government
of France, the Colombian Ministry of Culture's highest award, the Doctor
"Honoris Causa" from the University of Cordoba (Argentina), the First
Prize for the Cultural Heritage from the Salvation Found (FONSAL) from
the Municipality of Quito, and the highest prizes from the Municipality
of Cuenca, Azogues and Provincial Councils of Azuay and Pichincha. He
also received the Award for Cultural Merit, specially created last
He is survived by his wife, Esther Bermejo, his sons Hernan Jaime (living
in Barcelona, Spain) and Juan Andres (living in Spokane, Washington,
United States), two grandchildren and two granddaughters, and his eight
siblings: Lola, Jorge, Rodrigo, Jose, Teresa, Jaime, Eduardo y Maria

Destruction of Cultural Heritage in Iraq
Edited by Peter Stone & Joanne Farchakh
BajjalyDiscussion of the issues surrounding the destruction of
cultural property in times of conflict has become a key issue for debate
around the world. This book provides an historical statement as of 1st
March 2006 concerning the destruction of the cultural heritage in Iraq.
In a series of chapters it outlines the personal stories of a number of
individuals who were - and in most cases continue to be - involved. These
individuals are involved at all levels, and come from various points
along the political spectrum, giving a rounded and balanced perspective
so easily lost in single authored reports. It also provides the first
views written by Iraqis on the situation of archaeology in Iraq under
Saddam and an overview and contextualisation of the issues surrounding
the looting, theft and destruction of the archaeological sites, the Iraqi
National museum and the libraries in Baghdad since the war was launched
in 2003. Beyond this, It examines our attitudes towards the preservation
of cultural and heritage resources and, in particular, the growing
political awareness of their importance. Although related to a single
conflict, taking place at a specific time in history, the relevance of
this work goes far beyond these self-imposed boundaries.

School of Arts and Cultures at Newcastle University. JOANNE FARCHAKH
