Call for Australia ICOMOS members working or researching in the area of the impacts of climate change on cultural heritage places and values
The Cultural Heritage and Climate Change Working Group started off with great energy and enthusiasm arising out of a recommendation from the 2007 ICOMOS conference and following a survey of members on the issue. The role of this committee is to raise awareness of the issues relating to cultural heritage conservation arising from Climate Change both in the public and government sectors
The World Heritage Committee, the World Heritage Centre and the advisory bodies have all recognised the danger that climate change impacts pose for World Heritage places. In Australia several government departments have completed baseline studies considering the impact of climate change on heritage assets and coastal infrastructure.
It is timely now to refresh this working group and regalvanise the activities of Australia ICOMOS in relation to this important area. Our work plan is now out of date and developing a new agreed plan will be our first task. To that end we are calling for members who are either working or research active in this area or who have responsibilities for managing heritage places where climate change impacts are a concern.
If you are interested in being part of this working group please email Susan McIntyre-Tamwoy by COB 7 April and provide a brief account of your interest and experience with the topic. Working Groups members are expected to actively participate in the work of the committee so please ensure that you are willing and able to participate in at least 4 meetings per year and in taking on some activity in this area between meetings that will be needed to advance the work plan.
There are many benefits in joining ICOMOS – not only the fantastic people you will meet, but membership of Australia ICOMOS brings discounts at ICOMOS functions, at many conferences in Australia and internationally and on ICOMOS publications. The E-mail News provides a weekly bulletin board of information and events in Australia and overseas, including state-based events, conferences and site visits, as well as information on heritage publications, funding and grant opportunities, course details and job offers. Members also receive a number of issues annually of the Australia ICOMOS refereed journal Historic Environment. For all Full Members (including Young Professionals), the ICOMOS members’ card gives free or reduced-rate entry to many historic and cultural sites.
Australia ICOMOS welcomes new members in all the available membership categories, and particularly encourages students and young cultural heritage graduates to apply for membership. For further information go to the Membership page of the Australia ICOMOS website.
Membership applications are only considered at meetings of the Executive Committee – in order for your application to be considered at the May 2017 Executive Committee meeting, please apply via the online form by COB Friday 7 April 2017.

Gentrification and Heritage Conservation | Fall 2018
Guest Editors: Caroline Cheong and Kecia Fong
The term gentrification is used to describe both a process and outcome of physical, socioeconomic, and demographic neighborhood change. Its association with the displacement of low-income households by wealthier ones has overshadowed more nuanced understandings of the relationship between the historic built environment, conservation, and gentrification. This issue seeks to address this under-examined intersection. According to Rose (2001), neighborhoods with a high likelihood for gentrifying exhibit five key attributes: 1) a high percentage of renters; 2) easy access to the central business district; 3) location within a region of increasing metropolitan density; 4) high architectural value; and 5) relatively low housing values. In this schema, urban conservation is commonly considered to be a precursor to gentrification, particularly in distressed historic areas (Smith 1998; Glaser 2010).
Glaeser, Edward. (2010). Preservation Follies. City Journal, 20(2).
Rose, Kalima. (2001). Beyond Gentrification: Tools for Equitable Development. Shelterforce Online (May/June 2001).
Smith, Neil. (1986). Gentrification, the frontier, and the restructuring of urban space. In N. Smith & P. Williams (Eds.), Gentrification of the City (pp. 15-39). Boston: Allen & Unwin.
Gentrification drivers span from market trends to government-sponsored initiatives. In a market-led context, undervalued historic neighborhoods contain desirable attributes for incoming households, not least of which is the sense of place and continuity inherent within the historic built environment. In public scenarios, governments explicitly target historic neighborhoods for regeneration. In nearly all cases, existing, usually low or middle income households, face potential displacement. While gentrification has received ample scholarly attention, its occurrence in historic areas – and its interaction with heritage – is less thoroughly documented. This issue interrogates the relationship, past and present, between gentrification and heritage conservation. It does so by exploring questions related to heritage conservation in changing neighborhoods such as: Are historic neighborhoods necessarily targets for gentrification? What are the challenges and opportunities facing these areas, or those that are presently or have already undergone such processes? What other, more inclusive scenarios exist wherein urban conservation serves as a vehicle for neighborhood preservation? How can historians, conservation professionals, planners, and others allow for the concomitant retention of heritage and regeneration values? What variables are required in negotiating this balance? Who are the primary stakeholders and what roles do they play in the process of neighborhood change?
We welcome contributions from US and international contexts on a range of topics: researching and documenting place-based gentrification in historic contexts; exploring rural, urban, and suburban gentrification and conservation dynamics; equity issues related to changing historic areas; and solutions for managing neighborhood change in historic areas. Submissions may include, but are not limited to, case studies, theoretical explorations, and evaluations of current practices or policy programs.
Abstracts of 200-300 words are due by 1 July 2017. Authors will be notified of provisional paper acceptance by 10 July 2017. Final manuscript submissions will be due early November 2017.
6. NSW Built Heritage Conservation Consultants and Building Contractors Pre-qualification Scheme – follow-up launch sessions
The NSW Public Works Advisory (PWA) Built Heritage Conservation Consultants and Building Contractors Pre-qualification Scheme has been created as part of the NSW government procurement process to enable government agencies to commission high quality services for built heritage conservation from pre-qualified providers across more than 50 heritage categories and disciplines. The Scheme aims to be a central, informed register for Public Works Advisory and other state agencies to match specialist heritage service-provider capabilities and capacities with their needs and/or obligations for a wide range of heritage works, management and compliances on NSW government heritage assets.
Proven, experienced consultants and contractors are invited to apply to join the Scheme by submitting their pre-qualification documents through the procurement portal. There is no closing deadline for applications. There are no fixed panels or fixed periods. Single practitioners, small, medium and large practices are all encouraged to apply.
Applications will be assessed by an Evaluation Committee and reviewed on a regular basis. The Scheme is managed jointly by the Heritage Asset Advisory group (HAA), in PWA, and Heritage Stone Works (HSW) (formerly the NSW Public Works Heritage Services).
Follow-up Launch Sessions for the Scheme
The Public Works Heritage Asset Advisory Group, together with the Government Services Heritage Stoneworks Group, both within Department of Finance, Services and Innovation, will be repeating the launch of our ‘heritage consultancy and heritage construction pre-qualification scheme’ soon on three separate occasions. This is to enable those who missed the first launch to hear about the scheme which is aiming to enhance the maintenance, repair, restoration and adaptation of government assets using experienced private sector resources.
We are holding the follow-up launches and briefing events outlined below for private sector heritage consultants, specialist heritage construction companies, as well as for government agencies with significant heritage assets, to explain and illustrate the scheme and how they can take part. It is a great opportunity to meet and ask questions of the pre-qualification team.

The National Film and Sound Archive of Australia (NFSA) is celebrating the Sydney Harbour Bridge ahead of its 85th birthday (19 March 1932) with the publication of a new online exhibition, featuring archival footage of its construction and controversial opening, and highlighting the many roles it has played as one of Australia’s most recognisable icons.
A popular 1930 song called it ‘the bridge of our dreams come true’. ‘The Coathanger’, as the bridge is affectionately known, plays an important role in both special occasions and everyday life for Sydneysiders. It’s been the site for fireworks, marathons, stunts, protests and an Olympic torch run. It also has its share of romantic moments with an average of three couples per week getting engaged while they’re on the Bridge Climb.
The Sydney Harbour Bridge represented Sydney’s coming of age, from remote colonial outpost to a modern city with its own engineering wonder – the world’s longest arch bridge in the world at the time. Even the Queen Mother referred to it as ‘a magnificent monument to [Australia’s] progress’.
The bridge provided employment to 1,400 people during the Great Depression, and has served a much greater purpose than its original function. It doesn’t just connect Sydney north and south; it’s an international icon that looms large in the consciousness of Australians.
The Department of the Environment and Energy is pleased to announce the call for applications to the Protecting National Historic Sites 2016-17 Program.

THE DESTRUCTION OF MEMORY: FILM SCREENING AND FORUM
Co-presented with the Museums and Heritage Studies Program at the University of Sydney
In August 2015 the destruction of the one of Syria’s most famous sites, the Temple of Baal-Shamin in the ancient city of Palmyra, was stage managed, documented and images spread to the global media by Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil). It drew international condemnation and raised the issue of destruction of cultural heritage during war again.
During the Bosnian War of 1992 to 1995, in Bosnia and Kosovo both mosques and catholic churches had been deliberately targeted and destroyed. In 2012 the designated UNESCO world heritage site, Timbuktu in Mali, became the battle ground for religious extremists, and its famous mausoleums as well as the Sidi Yahia mosque were destroyed.
Despite international legislation and policy leading to some prosecutions in the International Criminal Court, the damage done to the cultural identity and heritage has remained hidden. Is there are war on culture, and what can be done to save it?
The film “The Destruction of Memory” documents these events and talks to the people trying to save their cultural heritage, both on the ground and in international courts.
Join us for a screening of the film, followed by a conversation moderated by Dr Avril Alba, Acting Director of the Master of Museums and Heritage Program, the film’s director Tim Slade, historian Professor Dirk Moses from the University of Sydney’s Department of History who appears in the film, and Sheridan Burke, Partner of GML Heritage, based in Sydney.
