Dear Queensland ICOMOS Members,
The Australia ICOMOS Executive Committee is meeting here in Brisbane soon and it is a good opportunity for the Queensland members to get together. We are proposing that the QLD members and the EC meet for drinks at Brisbane Powerhouse.
WHERE: Bar Alto, Brisbane Powerhouse (07 3358 1063)
WHEN: 6.30pm, 6 August (until late)
The World Press Photographic Exhibition will also be at the Powerhouse the same night, so it will be busy (and we can’t book).
Ours will be an informal event; drinks in the bar followed by food or snacks (Bar Alto has several dining options – let’s see where the mood takes us). We will meet in the bar area (inside or out) of Bar Alto, but if you have trouble finding us, or haven’t met/seen any of us before, please give Matt Whincop (0407 038 584) a call as you arrive and he will direct you.
Please come along and get to know your EC and other QLD members.
No need to RSVP – see you there!
QLD/NT Representative (ICOMOS EC)
Australia ICOMOS is collaborating with the APT Australasia Chapter to progress an Australian Heritage Quality Framework (AHQF), which will sit under The Burra Charter. A dedicated AHQF page on the Australia ICOMOS website has been established, which contains more detailed information about this initiative.
There will be many opportunities for Australia ICOMOS members and other stakeholders to contribute to the Framework; these will be advertised in the e-news in the future.
The Heritage Hypothetical is a debate that will be held on Thursday 18 August 2016 in Adelaide at the Flinders University City Campus. The event is organised by Environmental Defenders Office.
Panelists will include a MP, environmentalist, environmental lawyer and historian/planner who will be quizzed by moderator Brian Hayes QC about different scenarios involving natural and built heritage. None of the panelists have any idea what is going to happen. Mr Hayes QC proposes to postulate in totally informative and provocative manner in his not-to-be divulged approach on the topic: Natural and Built Heritage – Worth Defending?

The Australia ICOMOS Executive Committee has commissioned Nicholas Hall of Stepwise Consulting to provide a summary history of our organisation, based on the excellent detailed history prepared by Bronwyn Hanna, which was completed at the end of 2015. Liz Vines, immediate Past President, is coordinating this project
A derivative document for electronic (and in limited numbers, printed) publication is being prepared, which communicates key aspects of the history of Australia ICOMOS and the Burra Charter in a visual and captivating manner. This document, which will be publicly available, will summarise key developments in Australia ICOMOS’ history and reflect the passion for Australia ICOMOS members in its achievements.
If you have any photographs that you feel would be useful to incorporate into this document, please send to Liz Vines by email. Bronwyn had previously gathered photos as part of her history, but this is another call for any photos that might add to this new document.
Please submit your images (as high res as possible) to Liz by Friday 12 August.
Australia ICOMOS is pleased to announce the inaugural President’s Award, which recognises the important contribution made by the active engagement of younger and/or early career professionals in the cultural heritage field. ICOMOS already acknowledges experienced heritage professionals with Honorary ICOMOS membership (both national and international).
The establishment of the President’s Award was initiated by Elizabeth Vines and Kerime Danis (immediate past President and current President, respectively), who have both personally pledged the cash prizes for the inaugural award. The Australia ICOMOS Executive Committee has endorsed its establishment and continuation as a dedicated Australia ICOMOS award, to encourage and support those early on in their career (and extending nominations to also include non-ICOMOS members, in order to widen recognition of those in the field). Candidates can either apply themselves or be proposed by others (with the approval of the candidate).
Note that the term ‘professional’ is taken to mean anyone who is engaged in a cultural heritage field (or is training to be engaged) as a qualified person.
There are two categories for the President’s Award:
- A student / young / early career heritage practitioner who has made an outstanding contribution to a heritage project; and
- A trainee / apprentice or early career tradesperson who has made an outstanding contribution to a heritage project.
For further information visit the President’s Award webpage and download the nomination form (click on links below).

Closing date for receipt of nominations is 5pm, Monday 15 August 2016.
The Award will be formally presented during the joint National Trust and Australia ICOMOS People’s Ground Conference in Melbourne, 4-8 October 2016.

Tuesdays @ Tusculum: Lets Get Sirius – Sydney Brutalism
Tuesday 6 September, 6.30pm
Are the beautiful beasts of brutalism enjoying a second summer? Or not, as recent decisions surrounding the fate of the Sirius Apartments – one of Sydney’s most iconic brutalist buildings – show that architecture of this period is still much misunderstood. Join us to learn more about Sydney’s brutalist buildings, and how they might best be adapted and retained for the future. Glen Harper talks us through the ‘Bold, Bad and Indeed Beautiful’ of Sydney Brutalism, followed by a look at local and international perspectives on enabling adaptation with David Burdon.

David Burdon was awarded the 2015 Lethaby Scholarship by the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings in London, and spent nine months travelling the length and breadth of the UK studying the repair and conservation of old buildings, including more recent concrete structures. He is current Chair of the National Trust Built Advocacy Committee, a member of the Institute of Architect’s NSW Heritage Committee, and teaches at Sydney University. David is an architect at Hector Abrahams Architects.
Our talks program engages with a range of topics and speakers from the fields of architecture, urban design, and related creative disciplines.

The Tuesdays@Tusculum program is proudly supported by Australian Architectural Window Systems.
It is now only one month until the Nature-Culture Journey and the World Heritage Journey kick off at the IUCN World Conservation Congress in Honolulu. This year, rather than holding a standalone Symposium, US/ICOMOS is collaborating with ICOMOS and IUCN to produce these historic convenings. US/ICOMOS is thrilled to report that the Journeys have now grown to over 50 sessions!
The “Nature-Culture Journey” is a dedicated track of sessions that will occur as part of the IUCN Congress’s Forum. The Journey sessions are focused on the inter-linkages of natural and cultural heritage. The Congress Forum also includes a companion journey dedicated to the UNESCO World Heritage program. For full information on the Nature-Culture Journey, visit the US/ICOMOS Symposium webpage! The Journey is made possible through the generous support of the US National Park Service, the Norwegian Ministry of Climate and Environment and the State of Hawaii.
The Opening Plenary of the IUCN Congress Forum will occur on the afternoon of Thursday, September 1. Journey events will start with a breakfast on Friday, September 2 and end with a closing reception on Monday, September 5. A full schedule of events for both Journeys and other updated Journey information is available at the US/ICOMOS Symposium webpage.
Participation in the Nature-Culture and the World Heritage Journey and attendance at the Journey Welcome Breakfast require IUCN Congress registration. Click here for Congress registration information.
A limited number of hotel rooms remain available in the discounted block of rooms reserved by US/ICOMOS at the Moana Surfrider Hotel. The Surfrider is one of only a few historic hotels in Honolulu. Rooms are available on a “first come” basis. You can book rooms in the block by calling the Starwood Hawaii Group Reservations line at 808-921-4641 (hours are M-F 7am-5pm, Sat/Sun 8am-4pm HNL standard time). Ask for the US/ICOMOS block. There are also a variety of other hotel choices available through IUCN. The deadline for reserving a hotel room through IUCN is Tuesday, August 9, 2016. You can learn more about hotel options at the Symposium page of the US/ICOMOS website.
The Nature-Culture Journey and a companion World Heritage Journey collectively feature over 50 sessions planned by ICOMOS and IUCN constituencies, ICOMOS National Committees and International Scientific Committees, ICCROM, the UNESCO World Heritage Center, the U.S. National Park Service, NOAA and many others. A final program and schedule is now available.
Working on Mawson’s Huts in Antarctica
presented by Marty Passingham
The first expedition by the Mawson’s Huts Foundation was in the summer of 1997/98. The work undertaken following a heritage assessment a year earlier almost certainly saved Mawson’s Huts from blowing into the sea. Since then through fundraising and Commonwealth grants, numerous expeditions have taken place to conserve this important heritage site – last visited by Sir Douglas Mawson in 1931.
In December 2015, the latest expedition team set off from Hobart on ‘L’Astrolabe’ headed by team leader Marty Passingham. Marty’s presentation provides an overview of the conservation works that took place as well as a general look at living in the remoteness of Cape Dennison, Antarctica.
Marty Passingham is a heritage carpenter who has worked on Mawson’s Huts since 2002. He is currently the Works Manager at the Port Arthur Historic Site.
When: Wednesday 17 August, 2016 at 5.30pm
Where: Junior Medical Officer’s Conference Room (rear of the house), Port Arthur Historic Site. (Note: Bring a torch for the walk back to your car)
For more information call (03) 6251 2324.

Under the central theme of Future-Proofing, the Conference will consider the challenges facing museums and galleries, and focus on innovative ways to achieve financial, social, and environmental sustainability.
13. Heritage, Sustainability and Social Justice Postgraduate Symposium, Deakin University (Burwood, VIC), 28-29 November 2016 – call for papers
The Alfred Deakin Institute for Citizenship and Globalisation at Deakin University presents a 2-day postgraduate symposium for the discussion and exchange of ideas around the ways in which cultural heritage intersects with conflict and post conflict studies, ethics and human rights, and tourism and Indigenous heritage.
We are very fortunate to have keynote speakers Ms Lisa Ackerman, World Monuments Fund Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, and Emeritus Professor William Logan, Deakin University. Postgraduate researchers are encouraged to submit abstracts by 23 August 2016.
Please see the Cultural Heritage Symposium flyer and call for papers for further information.
The Getty Research Institute and the Getty Villa invite proposals for the 2017–2018 academic year.
Deadline: 3 October 2016
The Getty Research Institute theme, ICONOCLASM AND VANDALISM, explores iconoclasm not only as a form of destruction or a means of repression, but also as a vehicle for creative expression and protest. Iconoclasm is transformative, creating entirely new objects or meanings through alterations to existing artworks. Charged with symbolism, these remains testify to a history of reception, offering clues about the life and afterlife of an object. To a certain extent, all radical changes in cultural production can be described as iconoclastic.
Applicants are encouraged to adopt a broad approach to the theme by addressing topics such as religious and political iconoclasm, protection of cultural heritage, use of spolia, damnatio memoriae, street art, graffiti, performance art, or activism.
The Getty Villa theme, THE CLASSICAL WORLD IN CONTEXT: PERSIA, investigates the political, intellectual, religious, and artistic relations between Persia, Greece, and Rome from the ninth century BC to AD 651. Reaching from the borders of Greece to India, the Persian Empire was viewed by the Greeks as a vastly wealthy and powerful rival and often as an existential threat. The rise of the Roman Empire as a world power quickly brought it, too, into conflict with Persia, despite the common trade that flowed through their territories.
The 2017/2018 scholar year is the first of two terms that will be devoted to this theme. Priority will be given to research projects that are cross-cultural and interdisciplinary, and that utilize a wide range of archaeological, textual, and other evidence.
Detailed application guidelines are available online.
For more information about each theme visit the Getty Institute website.
Please address inquiries via email to the Research team.
First, on behalf of the ISCCL (ICOMOS – IFLA International Scientific Committee on Cultural Landscapes), I thank ICOMOS for supporting the recent Workshop on the Florence Charter on Historic Gardens (Florence 22-24 June 2016). The Workshop was an important starting point for discussion on developing future guidance on the Historic Gardens and, more generally, Defined (Designed) Cultural Landscapes. The Fondazione Romualdo Del Bianco supported the event and were outstanding in their work and support for the Workshop.
The Statement can be found below the words ‘READ HERE’. It is available in English only. It is intended that the Statement and future work on this project will be discussed with ISCCL members at the ISCCL 2016 Annual Meeting to be held at the University of Bath, UK (7-9 September 2016).
With best regards,

19. Falkland Craft Symposium, Falkland, UK, 19-21 August 2016
Living Lomonds Landscape Project, The Stables, Falkland Estate, Fife
THREE-DAY FALKLAND CRAFT SYMPOSIUM
Centre for Stewardship, Falkland, UK
19-21 August 2016
This event is the culmination of three years of exploration of both traditional and contemporary skills of craftspeople locally, in and around Fife, and further afield. There are many talented people working in Scotland although, at the same time, there is a distinct shortage of skills in some areas. Real efforts are being made to grow those skills so that the crafts can continue to bring joy into our lives while providing a livelihood for those who have dedicated their lives to particular crafts.
Three overlapping themes have been chosen – Traditional Building Crafts, Local Craft Traditions, and Home & Country Crafts.
Lunch will be provided at 1:15pm for all registered participants.
We will be glad to welcome visiting members of the public and especially the local community who wish to look in to see what is going on, to listen to a lecture or watch a particular craft activity.
Open Studios North Fife will be present at the Symposium and are actively recruiting makers and artists who wish to open their studios for the weekend 29 April -1 May 2017.
On all three days there will be a privileged late afternoon visit for registered participants.
It will be possible to register for one, two or all three days or to drop in.
Each of the three days will have one or more Champions.
Craft Symposium Co-ordinator: Dr Peter Burman MBE FSA, Arts & Heritage Consultant, Chairman of Falkland Stewardship Trust
