The 2018 Jim Kerr Address
18 April 2018, 5pm
Utzon Room, Sydney Opera House
The 2018 speaker will be the Sydney City Historian Dr Lisa Murray.
Lisa’s talk is titled Monuments and Memories: re-assessing colonial imperialism
Public monuments and memorials have been a vital form of commemoration that have shaped our collective memory and understanding of history for generations. Monuments have been erected by governments and institutions, private citizens through public subscriptions, and by individuals. They function to reinforce power and privilege, shaping public narratives. Memorials help people to remember, but at the same time they also assist in the art of forgetting. The meaning and social values of monuments are never static. Monuments take on layers of meaning through interpretation, cultural practices, re-inscribing and protest. The broadening of historiography in the late 20th century has allowed many groups of people to challenge the dominant colonial imperial narratives and to add other voices to the historical dialogue.
This lecture will reflect upon how the social values of monuments evolve and the challenges in addressing conflicting memories, both European and Aboriginal social values, in our public monuments.
The Speaker: Dr Lisa Murray is the City Historian, overseeing a diverse program at the City of Sydney Council, encompassing community, civic and urban history. With over 15 years of experience in the field of public history, Lisa is passionate about making history accessible to the public. Lisa is the award-winning author of planning histories and a regular contributor to debates around public history, including being a speaker at TEDxSydney in 2013. Her most recent books are Sydney Cemeteries: A Field Guide (NewSouth Publishing, 2016), which won a National Trust Heritage Award, and Our City: 175 Years in 175 Objects, an expansive catalogue that accompanied an anniversary exhibition at Sydney Town Hall in 2017. Lisa is currently writing a history of Australian Cemeteries, to be published by the National Library of Australia. Other research interests include history in the digital age; sensory urbanism; history and creative practice; landscapes and memory; the Dictionary of Sydney; Sydney music; and Sydney cookery books.

3. [NEW ITEM] Melbourne’s Domain Parkland & Memorial Precinct earns permanent place on National Heritage List – The Hon Josh Frydenberg MP media release
Australia ICOMOS is committed to the dissemination of relevant cultural heritage information. In line with this commitment we are circulating the following media release from The Hon Josh Frydenberg MP, dated 11 February 2018.
One of Australia’s outstanding government domains and an area which takes in landmarks such as Government House Victoria, the Domain Parklands, Melbourne Observatory and Shrine of Remembrance as well as some of Melbourne’s best known vistas has been permanently added to Australia’s National Heritage List.
The area, to be known as Melbourne’s Domain Parkland and Memorial Precinct, secured emergency heritage protection in February 2017, in the face of development pressures from Melbourne’s Metro Rail Project.
“Last year, I urged the Victorian Government to consider the impacts from the Melbourne Metro Rail Project on this important part of the city and approved St Kilda Road and Environs for interim listing,” Minister Frydenberg said.
“The permanent listing means this significant historic site and grand old part of Melbourne will be protected from future actions that may impact its National Heritage values.
“It’s good news for Melburnians and all Australians interested in our nation’s story.”
The new Melbourne’s Domain Parkland and Memorial Precinct National Heritage place encompasses 109 hectares south of the CBD between St Kilda Road and the Yarra River.
Much of the Precinct was developed over the course of the nineteenth century, including during the Victorian gold rush – a boom time for growth in Melbourne. Melbourne embraced its status as one of the world’s great cities with ambitious plans for boulevards, parks and places for scientific research and discovery.
The Precinct also became a gathering place to commemorate significant events and people. It is home to the Shrine of Remembrance, built to honour those who lost their lives in war. It also includes the King’s Domain Resting Place which is the commemorative burial place for 38 Victorian Aboriginal people.
The permanent inclusion of Melbourne’s Domain Parkland and Memorial Precinct in the National Heritage List cannot affect decisions made before the site’s listing, including those allowing trees to be removed from St Kilda Road, but will protect it from future actions that may impact its National Heritage values.
“The Precinct will now have ongoing protection as a National Heritage place and join the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Melbourne Cricket Ground as one of Australia’s most prestigious heritage sites,” Minister Frydenberg said.

4. [NEW ITEM] Emergency Heritage Nominations For Lake Burley Griffin – Lake Burley Griffin Guardians media release
Australia ICOMOS is committed to the dissemination of relevant cultural heritage information. In line with this commitment we are circulating the following media release from the Lake Burley Griffin Guardians, dated 15 February 2018.
The Lake Burley Griffin Guardians are delighted that the Federal government has commenced reviewing our submission for emergency heritage listings of Lake Burley Griffin and its Lakeshore Landscape. “We thank the Minister for the Environment and Energy, Josh Frydenberg, for acting and asking his department to conduct the heritage assessment”, said convenor Juliet Ramsay.
This assessment will consider if the two Emergency Nominations for National and/or Commonwealth Heritage listing meet the heritage values criteria set in the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (the EPBC Act); and whether heritage values are under threat of a significant adverse impact and the threat is likely and imminent.
Clearly the heritage values of Canberra’s iconic Lake and Lakeshore Landscape are highly significant in this unique garden city. “We are confident that thresholds for both Heritage Lists are met. Our skilled volunteers conducted extensive preparation work for these nominations.”
The imminent threats are pending the licensing and approvals sought from the Commonwealth by the ACT government. This is at West Basin – the Lake and shore area tucked between Commonwealth Bridge and the ANU.
“The Barr-Rattenbury Territory government wants to turn public parklands plus part of the Lake itself into another large private apartment estate. The planned works, to commence soon, are to fill in quite a large area of Lake to fit more development and thus obliterate Acton Park including related vistas across the Lake extending to distant ranges. Also planned is commercial development. Perimeter public space would be built on a new manmade lake edge street,” said Ms Ramsay.
“The outstanding 1960’s lake system masterwork was created through Sir Robert Menzies’ National Capital Development Commission integrating necessary technical design changes with the Walter Burley Griffin plan. The loss of significant views across the lake along with infilling the Lake and the proposed foreshore works at West Basin are threats to our magnificent Lake that belongs to all Australians and is internationally admired.”
The Guardians encourage the Minister to provide interim and then permanent protection as a matter of urgency. Then Lake Burley Griffin’s heritage values will be conserved for current and future generations, as they deserve to be.
More information is included in the MR Emergency Heritage for Canberra Lake 15.2.18.

Tusculum Talk: Philip Cox talk on Tocal College
20 February 2018, 6:30–8pm
Tusculum AIA NSW Chapter
Philip Cox will discuss building the CB Alexander Campus of Tocal College, Patterson, NSW on part of the original Tocal Homestead Property, illustrated with the original film of 1964 and 1965, Building Tocal.
Tocal College – CB Alexander Campus or ‘Tocal’ as it is often referred to – is an exemplary work of Sydney School architecture. Designed by Phillip Cox and Ian McKay, and built between 1963 and 1965, it was awarded the RAIA Sir John Sulman Medal for Outstanding Architecture and the RAIA Blacket Prize for a Building of Outstanding Merit in rural NSW in 1965. It was built to provide onsite accommodation for approximately 120 students, incorporating many repetitive and complex features. ‘Tocal’ remains distinctive in Australian educational architecture, as it signifies a fundamental shift away from a more traditional, European approach to building, manifesting clear expression of structure and embracing its relationship to the rural Australian landscape. In the 2014 National Architecture Awards, the project received the Enduring Architecture Award.
Cost: AIA Members $15, non-members $30, DOCOMOMO or ICOMOS associated members $15
Venue: Australian Institute of Architects, 3 Manning Street, Potts Point NSW 2011

The Environment Institute of Australia and New Zealand Inc (EIANZ) has recently established a Heritage Special Interest Section. Its aim is to develop and promote knowledge about heritage as an essential element of the environment as well as to improve professional practice and recognition of heritage practitioners. To further these aims, we are seeking to compile the first heritage special issue of the EIANZ journal, the Australasian Journal of Environmental Management (AJEM). The focus of the AJEM is on policy and practice, and we welcome submissions of abstracts on any aspect of these themes.
Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:
* Is policy and practice in Australia and New Zealand effectively protecting heritage?
* Are our heritage practices adequate to interpret and conserve the past, to help us understand our environment, and to pass that legacy on to the future?
* Engagement of stakeholders in heritage
* Case studies of successful collaborative projects where heritage has been integrated with other environmental practice
* How would effective policy for Intangible heritage and heritage landscapes look?
* Multiple uses for heritage
* What is heritage anyway?
Papers will be reviewed following the AJEM double‐blind review process. Expressions of interest to publish, along with an abstract, should be submitted to the guest editors, Richard Sharp FEIANZ CEnvP (email Richard) and Vanessa Hardy MEIANZ M.ICOMOS (email Vanessa) by 20 February 2018.
Following acceptance of the EOI and abstract, full papers should be submitted by 30 August 2018 by online submission to the Australasian Journal of Environmental Management Scholar One Manuscripts. Papers should be prepared using the AJEM Guidelines. The guest editors welcome informal enquiries related to the proposed topics.
