5) Australia ICOMOS – Canberra Talk Series




Paul Rappoport

Rappoport Heritage Consultants (NSW)


Since the publication of the Australian Government Productivity Commission Report in 2006 [Conservation of Australia's Historic Heritage Places], widespread market failure in the heritage sector in all states and territories of Australia has been identified.  Key to the problem is; how to get the community involved; how to fund and incentivise heritage; how to put forward a set of comprehensive and cogent planning policies to address the problem of maintaining, managing and conserving privately owned heritage which accounts for more than 80% of the national heritage stock.  This topic links up to the culmination of a recently completed Masters dissertation at Sydney University [Masters in Urban & Regional Planning] by the author into heritage planning issues and conundrums highlighted but not resolved by the Productivity Commission. The paper will address the topic of “increased community participation – how to get owners of heritage to love the asset they’ve got”.  The delivery will be cast from a planning and policy perspective.


Paul Rappoport is a qualified architect and a member of Australia ICOMOS and runs a heritage consultancy firm in Sydney NSW.


Members and the public are welcome.  Refreshments will be available.


This is part of a series of talks organised in Canberra by Australia ICOMOS.


Time & Date:  5.00-6.30 pm, Thursday 26 February 2009 – the talk will actually start at 5.30.


Venue:  Barton Room (NOTE ROOM CHANGE – usually Menzies Room), National Archives of Australia, East Block, Queen Victoria Terrace, Parkes (enter from Kings Avenue side).


RSVP:  To Duncan Marshall at

8) Heritage Canada Foundation – Communiqué: Heritage Canada Foundation Sees Positives in Federal Budget


Ottawa, ON January 28, 2009 –The Heritage Canada Foundation (HCF) expressed measured satisfaction that the federal Budget tabled yesterday by the Minister of Finance includes some recognition of the need to invest in historic buildings.


The budget contained $75 million for the long-dormant National Historic Sites Cost-Sharing Program which will make bricks-and-mortar matching funds available for a few of  Canada’s approximately 900 National Historic Sites (NHS). There is also $323 million over two years for the restoration of federally-owned buildings and $2 million to plan the future of Quebec City’s historic drill hall, the Manège Militaire, a NHS damaged by fire last year.


“These amounts will help keep traditional skills alive and prolong the life of a handful of iconic places which shape our identity, create jobs, and attract tourist dollars,” said HCF executive director Natalie Bull from Parliament Hill yesterday. “But HCF is disappointed that a broad federal incentive for the rehabilitation of historic properties is absent from this budget.”


In the United States, a strong preservation industry exists because 30 years ago, the U.S. established a 20 percent federal tax credit for rehabilitation of heritage buildings and a 10 percent tax credit for the rehabilitation of non-heritage, non-residential buildings built before 1936. The program has leveraged over $36 billion in private investment in historic buildings with a 5 to 1 ratio of private investment to federal tax credits. An average of 45 new jobs are created by each project.


The budget does contain a number of measures which while not specifically targeting heritage buildings, can be used to encourage much needed investment in them:


•     $60 million over two years for cultural infrastructure which will benefit local theatres, libraries, and small museums, many of which are housed in historic buildings.

•     A temporary Home Renovation Tax Credit to a maximum of $1,350 for repair and renovation of residences. These new credits can be stacked with grants of up to $5,000 from the existing ecoENERGY Retrofit grant program, beefed up with an additional $300 million over two years.

•     $2 billion in low-cost loans from Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation for neighbourhood regeneration projects that communities can tap into.

UNESCO study on international law and mobility of artists, artworks, cultural goods and services

ICOMOS members are invited to respond in their individual professional capacity


UNESCO has commissioned Richard Poláček, together with Judith Staines, to make a short research project in January/February 2009. This study will provide an overview of the main international legal instruments plus examples of bilateral and multilateral cooperation agreements from around the world with an impact on the mobility of artists, artworks, cultural goods and services.  It will also examine obstacles to mobility, present examples of good practice and propose strategies and actions for policy- and decision-makers. 


The study was commissioned in the framework of additional assistance to the Intergovernmental Committee for the Protection and Promotion of Cultural Diversity, and as part of the follow up of the Recommendation concerning the Status of the Artist (UNESCO, 1980).  The final report is intended as an advocacy document examining wider impacts of policy and legislation on the international circulation of artists and their works.


 ICOMOS members are invited to make a contribution to the study in their own individual professional capacity (i.e. not an official ICOMOS response) via the online questionnaire at:

Publication : Institut National du Patrimoine (INP) : Les grands chantiers de restauration en Europe.

Actes du colloque organisé par l’INP les 28 et 29 juin 2007, en partenariat avec le C2RMF, le LRMH et le CRCC

A paraître le 25 mars 2009

L’Institut national du patrimoine vient de publier, en coédition avec Somogy Editions d’Art, Les grands chantiers de restauration en Europe.


Le colloque, organisé en juin 2007, proposait une réflexion sur les chantiers de grande envergure qui ont permis la restauration de monuments, de sites archéologiques ou industriels, de fresques, de grands décors ou de grandes collections, dans différents pays européens.


Cet ouvrage permet ainsi de redécouvrir des oeuvres et des monuments exceptionnels du patrimoine européen, auxquels la restauration a permis de donner une seconde vie : l’église gothique Notre-Dame du Sablon à Bruxelles, la reconstruction de Dresde, la place Stanislas à Nancy, les salles d’apparat des Habsbourg dans le palais de l’Albertina à Vienne, les bains ottomans d’Omeriye à Nicosie, les peintures murales dans l’église supérieure de la basilique Saint- François à Assise…


La mise en lumière de ces importants travaux de restauration doit réaffirmer la nécessité d’une véritable politique de sauvegarde et de valorisation d’un patrimoine commun
