Conference Update
Cairns 19th-21st July

Susan McIntyre-Tamwoy on behalf of the Conference Organizing Committee.

New information is being added to the conference website all the time! Some of the latest information includes profiles and photos of our key note speaker John Hurd and of Malcolm McCulloch, one of the presenters in our Public Forum on Heritage and Climate Change.

A call for papers for the Symposium on Heritage and Climate Change which is being held on the 19th July has also been added to the Call for Papers page. More information about this important event is included on the ‘workshops’ page of the forum. If you know of anyone who has something to contribute to this discussion please contact me or one of the 3 convenors of the symposium listed on the website.

The committee has also decided to have a formal poster session/exhibition at this conference. Abstracts for poster contributions can also be submitted via the ‘Call for Papers’ page.  This is an ideal way to showcase the work of your heritage business/agency. It is hoped that this exhibition can be left in place for a few weeks to enable students, staff and visitors to JCU to see the range of interesting and exciting work being undertaken by heritage professionals and agencies in Australia and the region. The opening of the poster exhibition will be built into the program of the conference with a wine and cheese reception.

The Call for Abstracts closes on MARCH 9th so hurry and get that idea for a paper in the symposium and/or the conference; or that idea for a poster, down on paper (well cyberspace as submission is on line via the website!).

We are actively seeking sponsorship to assist with the conference costs and to subsidize a number of specific areas such as:
·        Functions including the conference dinner, public forum and welcome reception; poster exhibition launch and Cook Island hungi.
·        Assistance with airfares and travel costs for ICOMOS Pasifika delegates
·        Assistance with travel costs for Aboriginal and Torres strait Islander delegates
·        Assistance with drawcard speakers for various sessions.

Sponsorship details are included on the website. If you have any suggestions of likely sponsors please email them to me; or if you would like to be a sponsor yourself please contact the conference managers at  On that note the conference organizing committee would like to thank Godden Mackay Logan Pty Ltd for their commitment of a generous conference donation.

Don’t forget that another way that you can assist is in providing a prize for the Conference Dinner Raffle which I mentioned in last weeks e-news. This raffle supports the AICOMOS funds for assistance to

·        Pacific Training,
·        Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander conference attendance and
·        Student Bursaries

Send any pledges of prizes to or actual prizes mail to AICOMOS Conference

4) ICOMOS Joint International Scientific Committee Meeting
Save the Date!
21-23 June 2007

organized by
International Scientific Committees on 20th Century Heritage (ISC20C) and International Scientific Committee on the Analysis and Restoration of Architectural Heritage (ISCARSAH)

Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) Campus
Chicago, Illinois

Event Description
This event presents an occasion for two International Scientific Committees, both founded by the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS), to collaborate; and provide an opportunity for interested North American experts to participate in this collaboration.  ICOMOS has recently formed the International Scientific Committee on Twentieth Century Heritage (ISC20C).  The International Scientific Committee on the Analysis and Restoration of Architectural Heritage (ISCARSAH) was founded through ICOMOS in 1996.  Each Committee is comprised of representative members internationally with established expertise who are recognized architects, engineers, historians, and scientists.

This three day event will consist of a one day symposium; a day of tours; and a day devoted to meetings of the ISC20C and the ISCARSAH including separate meetings of numerous preservation groups and agencies that plan to attend.

Call for Contributions
Relative to the topic of the conference, consideration of abstract contributions will be along the following themes:
· Methods of determining significance.
· Challenges with protecting 20th Century heritage - successes, failures, and works in progress.
· Technical, social, historical, and/or economic factors that have impacted the development for the protection of 20th Century heritage and its preservation.

Selected authors will be invited to either present their topics at the symposium or take part as panelists.  Other abstracts will be presented to the attendees in brief by the Conference Committee with digital images provided by the author.  For those interested in submitting an abstract, please see details in attached announcement and contact Stephen J. Kelley at email:

Deadline for one page abstracts:    March 30 2007
Acceptance of papers:                      April 20 2007
Dead line for completed papers:       May 25 2007

The event will be held on 21-23 June 2006 at the Ludwig Mies van der Rohe-designed campus of the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, Illinois, USA.

Registration and Lodgings
Cost of Registration has not yet been set.  Dormitory style lodgings will be available on the Campus of IIT for a limited number of participants.  The Conference Organizers are still within the fund-raising process.  We are planning on subsidizing the participation of the international participants.   We will update this information as funding becomes available.

ISC20C was initiated at the ICOMOS General Assembly in Xi’an China in 2005.  Composed of internationally recognized architects and historians, seeks to augment and relate to the roles and responsibilities of other organizations involved in the conservation of 20th Century heritage and, where appropriate, develop partnerships to achieve the mutual objectives and goals of identification, conservation, and interpretation of 20th century heritage.

ISCARSAH was founded by ICOMOS in 1996 as a forum and network for engineers involved in the restoration and care of building heritage.  The Committee - made up of internationally renowned, engineers, architects, and specialists - is establishing Principles and Guidelines to be used by those involved with technical aspects of preservation.  One product of this collaboration, the ICOMOS Charter - Principles for the Analysis, Conservation and Structural Restoration of Architectural Heritage (ISCARSAH Principles) was ratified by the ICOMOS 14th General Assembly in Zimbabwe in October of 2003.

For more information about the upcoming program, please contact Sheridan Burke, Co-president ISC C20.

5) Streetwise Asia Fund  Tax Effective Donations Now Possible

Many Australia ICOMOS members have previously made pledges to the Streetwise Asia Fund with donations to be confirmed when tax deductible status for the Fund had been achieved.  The establishment of the fund has been accompanied by the publication Streetwise Asia: A Practical Guide for the Conservation and Revitalisation of Heritage Cities and Towns In Asia by Australian conservation architect Elizabeth Vines. This book has been published jointly by UNESCO and the World Bank with support of Deakin University’s Cultural Heritage Centre for Asia and the Pacific.  The cost of printing has been provided by UNESCO and the World Bank and all the proceeds from this publication are being donated to the fund. 

Initially a partnership with the Australian Council of National Trusts appeared to make a tax effective status for the fund possible, but after eighteen months of negotiations with the Australian Tax Office, this was not achieved.  The good news is that a new structure has now been established for the Fund to achieve tax deductible status.  This has been achieved through an association with Australind Childrens Fund Inc. 

The Streetwise Asia Fund has the support of the UNESCO Regional Advisor for Culture in Asia and the Pacific.  The fund aims to provide culturally appropriate education facilities and heritage programs for children in vulnerable situations in urban and rural areas in Asia.  The fund supports the rehabilitation of traditional educational buildings in ways which are respectful of, and promote, a diversity of heritage traditions.  The fund will promote the use of traditional local forms that have cultural significance and employ indigenous technologies which have evolved safe and appropriate forms of construction.

The fund seeks to support activities that protect and increase the financial sustainability of Asia’s unique heritage, for present and future generations. Example projects will include upgrades of typical vernacular educational buildings that will improve school facilities for children at the same time as establishing appropriate conservation standards for these buildings. Children will be involved in the projects, learning about their built heritage and the importance of retaining traditional building structures where possible.

Donations have been obtained and pledged from a variety of sources, including the proceeds from the sale of the Streetwise Asia publication, which has acted as seed funding and a start up revenue source.  To date, more than $10,500 has been raised through the sale of this publication. 

The Streetwise Asia fund is now administered through the Australian Children Fund Inc, a tax deductible Registered Australian Charity.  All donations over $2.00 are tax deductible.   Australind Children’s Fund is a non-Government Australian based international Aid Organisation (NGO) that has been supporting projects in India, East Timor and many other countries over the past 25 years. It has raised over $500 000 for international aid projects and continues to support community based aid programs in a range of countries.  All Streetwise Asia funds donated will be allocated to projects which will have heritage conservation outcomes.  In addition, there are no administration costs for the voluntary administration officers and all funds will be put to use for projects identified and supported by the UNESCO Regional Advisor for Culture in Asia and the Pacific. 

Donations are now welcome.  For further information about the Streetwise Asia Fund, please contact Elizabeth Vines, McDougall & Vines Conservation and Heritage Consultants 61-8-83626399, fax 61-8-83630121


6) 3rd International Symposium on Asian Heritage:
Post Disaster Mitigation

Yogyakarta, 21 February 2007

Center for Heritage Conservation Department of Architecture and Planning
Faculty of Engineering Gadjah Mada University
in co-operation  with 
Urban Design and Conservation Research Unit
Faculty of Built Environment
Uinversiti Teknologi Malaysia

We are pleased to announce the holding of an International Symposium on Asian Heritage: Post Disaster Mitigation designed to address key issues of post disaster mitigation in heritage entities and the strategies on the formulation of master conservation planning of Kotagede Heritage District post earthquake.

The working sessions of the symposium will be held in the Department of Architecture and Planning, Faculty of Engineering Gadjah Mada University (Location K1 Room, West Wing Building 2nd Floor) on Wednesday 21 February 2007.  This symposium which is opened to public is part of the 4th International Field School on Asian Heritage focusing on the Master Plan of Revitalization and Rehabilitation of Kotagede Heritage District.


There had been 3 successful International Field School on Asian Heritage (IFSAH) programs in the past.  1st IFSAH being held in Thailand organised by the King Mongkut Institute of Technology at Ladkrabang, Bangkok (August 2002). The 2nd IFSAH was held in Malaysia (September 2003) organised by the Urban Design and Conservation Research Unit of the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia and sponsored by the Japan Foundation.  The 3rd IFSAH organised by the Nehru Cultural Foundation was held in Northwest India (January 2005).

IFSAH was formulated with the following objectives:
·To exchange the experiences in cultural heritage planning and management in many Asian countries that will facilitate the development of “Asian standards” for cultural heritage planning and management.
·To understand and investigate tangible cultural heritage sites ranging from those listed World Heritage sites to small urban historic quarters.

The 4th IFSAH program was scheduled to be organized by the Centre for Heritage Conservation at Department of Architecture and Planning, Gadjah Mada University in August - September 2006, but owing to the tragic earthquake that occurred in May, the organizer is unable to carry out the scheduled program.  It was initially suggested that the program be postponed indefinitely.  The secretariat for IFSAH finds that to postpone the event is almost like disserting the colleagues in Yogyakarta when it is actually the crucial time that IFSAH should be rendering help and support to overcome the losses during the tragic earthquake.  Therefore this proposal is initiates as a counter proposal, to initiate a program called “Master Plan on Revitalization and Rehabilitation of Kotagede Heritage District, Yogyakarta” which had suffered severe damage during the last earthquake. 

Amidst other World Heritage sites and other cultural properties in and around Yogyakarta, Kotagede is the most neglected and difficult to manage.  Members of the Centre for Heritage Conservation at Gadjah Mada University abd the Jogja Heritage Society are really concern about this site and have furnished the IFSAH secretariat with information in the hope that we can reorganize the 4th IFSAH program to give priority in helping them find solutions to deal with the complex issues pertaining Kotagede heritage properties restoration. 

Since the 2nd IFSAH, an International Symposium on Asian Heritage has been organized in Malaka. This first symposium entitled “Learning from Local Community’s Experience” which was well attended by local community leaders from Japan, Taiwan, India, Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia who came to share their experience with the participants.

In the 3rd IFSAH was preceded by an unfortunate event of the December 2004 tsunami incident, the field trip ended with a symposium in Ahmedabad, India, dedicated entirely to discuss the “Post Disaster Management of Heritage Entities” which representatives from Phuket, North Sumatra (representing Aceh), Ahmedabad, Taipei and Kobe shared their experience with participants that came from Malaysia, Indonesia, Taiwan, India and Thailand.

Presently, in the 4th IFSAH which is also preceded by unfortunate event of the May 2006 earthquake, the international symposium is also dedicated to discuss the post disaster mitigation of heritage entities. Instead to learn the experiences of various countries and urban planning and design strategies on this issue, the symposium also intends to find strategies on formulation of master conservation planning of Kotagede Heritage District post earthquake.
