Following the close of submissions, the Panel will formulate a discussion paper for the Minister’s consideration.The time frame for input prior to the discussion paper is 6 weeks.

The ICOMOS submission will be compiled by NSW members of the Executive Committee. We would be interested to hear not only from NSW members, but members in other states who have experience of the NSW system and how it compares with those elsewhere.

Australia ICOMOS is inviting members to have their say on the review of the NSW Heritage Act and its relationship to other pertinent Acts, and heritage matters at both State and local levels. If you would like to assist in formulating the Australia ICOMOS submission, the Executive Committee would appreciate receiving your e-replies by Sunday 16th September.Please send your comments to Sue Jackson-Stepowski at Members are of course welcome to make submissions to the Panel independently.

The terms of reference for the Panel are as follows:

Undertake a review of the Heritage Act and its operations and make recommendations to reform and update administrative and legislative provisions.

The review should particularly focus on [but not limited to] the following:

1. Duplicative and overlapping provisions with other legislation [including at the national level]

2. Strengthening the integration of heritage provisions with the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act [both at the plan making and development control levels]

3. State heritage provisions and practice, including but not limited to:
(a) improvements that can be made to the listing process;
(b) alternatives to the listing process [eg heritage agreements];
(c) the public benefit of outcomes;
(d) the test for achieving State heritage status;
(e) the role of the property owner or stakeholders and appeal rights;
(f) the approval process for alterations to items on the SHR, including the
rights of property owners and stakeholders; and
(g) resource and time efficiency.

4. The functions and constitution of the Heritage Council.

5. Consideration of local heritage processes and whether they warrant improvement.


2) Survey: Cultural Heritage and the Impacts of Climate Change

Australia ICOMOS Survey of heritage research and investigations related to Climate Change and Cultural Heritage

Recently in conjunction with the Extreme Heritage Conference, Australia ICOMOS held a symposium and a public forum on Heritage and Climate Change. In the course of organizing these events it became obvious that there were no concerted programs of research and or assessment being undertaken by research institutions or governments into this issue. However it seems that there was a range of projects being undertaken by individuals and organizations that had relevance.

Australia ICOMOS is keen to assess Australia’s level of preparedness in relation to this issue and develop a role in promoting effective research and investigation into both the potential impacts of Climate Change on our cultural heritage and their remediation. We have developed a very brief questionnaire as a first step in collating data on the range of projects being undertaken which are directly or indirectly relevant to the identification, assessment or mitigation of the impact of climate change on cultural heritage. Ultimately we would like to collate data on this topic data relevant to heritage conservation disciplines, on studies and research relevant to the likely impact of global climate change on cultural heritage.

This survey is being co-ordinated by Susan McIntyre-Tamwoy. All members of Australia ICOMOS will soon receive a copy of the survey and it is hoped that you will fill it out and return it promptly (by 30th September would be appreciated!!!). It will only take about 5-10mins of your time. In addition it would be appreciated if you could circulate the questionnaire to any one that you think might be interested or who has been involved in relevant work. Completed questionnaires can be forwarded to Susan at fax 0740421380 or scannned and emailed to

4) History Week Talk by NSW Government Architect

Join NSW Government Architect Peter Mould in a discussion about the role of the Government Architect's Office. Peter examines the design of public buildings throughout Sydney and NSW over the past two centuries, and the challenges of adapting these heritage buildings for contemporary uses. This is an official Historyweek 2007 event.

DATE Friday 21 September 2007 at 3pm
LOCATION Tusculum, 3 Manning Street, Potts Point, 2011, Sydney
CONTACT Laila Ellmoos 9372 8492 or for details & bookings.
COST: Free

Governor Lachlan Macquarie appointed emancipist Francis Greenway as NSW’s inaugural Colonial Architect in 1816. Greenway was responsible for the design of some of the most significant public buildings in NSW, including the Hyde Park Barracks and the Conservatorium of Music. Macquarie’s decision to appoint a Colonial Architect would prove to be a foresighted one, and would lead to the formation of the Colonial Architect’s Branch within the Department of Public Works in 1856.

Today, the NSW Government Architect’s Office continues the almost 200 year old legacy of designing and overseeing the construction of public buildings throughout Sydney and NSW. These include courthouses, libraries, hospitals, gaols and schools. The Government Architect’s Office is also charged with the responsibility of ensuring the ongoing life of those public buildings designed and built in the 19th and 20th centuries. In this talk for History Week 2007, the NSW Government Architect Peter Mould will discuss the role of the Government Architect's Office in designing public buildings throughout Sydney and NSW over the past two centuries, and the challenges of adapting these buildings for contemporary uses.


5) History Week : Friends of Callan Park - Forum

Forum  ~~  Callan Park’s Artistic Legacy
3 artistic responses to Callan Park for History Week
THIS SUNDAY ~~ 16 September2007

2  4 pm  NSW Writers’ Centre

The very name CALLAN PARK provokes different responses:  mystery, contention, respite, danger and safety.  This seminar explores ways in which artists have responded to Callan Park  photographing its landscape and structures; harvesting plant material to dye cloth and threads to stitch stories; and construct ideas about breaking down the walls.

 Jill Brown:  Director/Performance Lecturer at University of Western Sydney, discusses her role as performance maker and in particular the impact of Callan Park on her recent work.

        Anne Ferran:  is a visual artist, writer and academic at SCA (Sydney College of the Arts) within Callan Park.  Anne will talk about her exhibition INSULA held at SCA Gallery in 2003. This work was based on a small archive of photographs of unidentified psychiatric patients, taken in the 1940s at a Sydney hospital. Ferran describes her work as “like a second or shadow archive, intended as a reproach for the complete disappearance of names and life histories, and an attempt to show the images in a more sympathetic light”.

        Emma Rowden:  is a Sydney based architect who will speak about her recent project titled - reconfiguring the wall -  a user’s guide.  Callan Park’s future use lays in limbo. Most of the buildings are in advanced states of decay and many are of high heritage significance. The future uses of the site cannot be separated from the cacophony of disparate voices that exist on the site.   
Emma’s design pulls the boundary wall on Darling Street into the site forming two buildings  a new facility on site. One is designed as a hospitality management training school, whose staff and student employment philosophy is considerate of the needs of consumers of mental health services. The larger building, the health retreat, staffed by the school’s graduates, is open to the public, and would also set aside rooms for consumers of mental health services.

Where:  NSW Writers' Centre at Callan Park, enter at Main Gates at intersection Cecily & Darling Streets, Rozelle
Enquiries:      0413 733 218
Cost:   $6 - Forum. Bookings essential.   [$5 students]
Home Made Afternoon Tea ($5) to follow on the Verandah


6) Reconstruction over Ruins: Arguments for and against the rebuilding of Dresden’s Frauenkirche

Cultural Heritage Centre for Asia and the Pacific
Thursday 20 th September
from 4:30pm

Reconstruction over Ruins: Arguments for and against the rebuilding of Dresden’s Frauenkirche

Presenter: Tony Joel, Associate Lecturer in History, Deakin University

Prior to its destruction in February 1945, Dresden’s Frauenkirche, or Church of Our Lady, had been widely considered German Protestantism’s most important architectural achievement.

In the immediate postwar period it was hoped, indeed expected, the Frauenkirche would be rebuilt as soon as possible. Disinterest from both Church and State authorities, however, meant that unlike other landmark buildings such as the Zwinger the Frauenkirche remained in ruins.

In order to facilitate possible rebuilding and prevent the site from being redeveloped, for more than four decades Dresden’s Denkmalpflege Institut (Institute for the Preservation of Historic and Cultural Monuments) continued to guard over the Frauenkirche ruins as its most treasured possession. During this time, what was left of the church - a mountain of rubble framed by two wall stumps still standing - effectively took on a life of its own as the site increasingly came to serve as an arresting antiwar memorial.

Immediately following Germany’s reunification, a local citizen’s initiative launched an international appeal for help to rebuild Dresden’s Frauenkirche. The appeal proved overwhelmingly popular and ultimately successful. Nevertheless, the idea of reconstructing the Frauenkirche met with staunch criticism from some quarters that argued it would be in breach of the Venice Charter. Most notably, Germany’s national society of monument preservation, the Deutsche Stiftung Denkmalschutz, refused to support the rebuilding project on the grounds that it could only be realised at the expense of the ruins, which it was argued deserved preservation in their own right as an antiwar memorial.

The paper will provide an overview of: the historical significance of the Frauenkirche for Dresden and its special meaning for Dresdeners; initial postwar motivations for preserving the ruins and the Frauenkirche site; the ruins’ increasing identification as an important antiwar memorial; the arguments for and against rebuilding; and the reconstruction process based on anastylosis.

There is no entry charge and everyone is welcome

10) News from Heritage Tasmania

National heritage-listing for Tasmanian convict sites
Three of Tasmania’s key convict sites have joined Port Arthur on the National Heritage List. Most people are aware of Port Arthur’s rich history dating back to 1830, and now the nearby Coal Mines site has also been added to the list because it demonstrates the severity of punishment that could be metered out to recalcitrant convicts.

A scattered and disappearing tourism cave heritage
When, if ever, does graffiti become an historic or cultural artefact? That was a challenging question posed by Tasmanian historian, Dr Nic Haygarth, at Heritage Tasmania’s July lunchtime seminar. The talk that followed provided a fascinating insight into the history of tourism cave heritage in Tasmania. Dr Haygarth said caving has long been a recreational and tourist activity for Tasmanians and visitors. The earliest accounts of a recreational visit to a karst cave dates from the 1840s and the earliest found graffiti dates back to the 1850s from Wet Cave, Mole Creek.

Two Tasmanian huts heritage-listed
Two humble huts of great historic heritage importance have been entered in the Tasmanian Heritage Register. Churchills Hut, near Maydena, used to trap Tasmanian tigers, and the Harefield Prisoner of War Hut at Wattle Hill, both have great importance in Tasmanias historic and cultural heritage. Churchills Hut is one of the few surviving low country trappers’ huts remaining in Tasmania. The trapping of animals for their skins was work commonly undertaken by semi-skilled rural men to make a seasonal living.

Heritage Conservation Funding Program funding round opens
The latest round of the Heritage Conservation Funding Program, which is funded by the Tasmanian Government and administered by the Tasmanian Heritage Council, opened last weekend. The program provides funding for owners of heritage listed properties to undertake urgent and essential works.  Urgent and essential works refers to those works which are absolutely necessary and require immediate action to prevent major and irreversible loss, or further degradation of the heritage values of a place. The program provides a maximum grant of $25,000 which is available as a one-third contribution of the total project cost.  In this funding-round a total $150,000 is available.

Application forms are available by contacting Heritage Tasmania or from their website at Applicants seeking further information about the funding round can contact Heritage Tasmania on 1300 850 332 for the cost of a local call, or via email at

Call for Papers: Tenth Docomomo International conference
13-20 September 2008, Rotterdam, Netherlands
The Dutch chapter of Docomomo is hosting the 10th International Docomomo Conference. Docomomo invites architects, researchers, historians and other parties involved in the processes of preservation, conservation, renovation and transformation of modern buildings to investigate the paradox of the modern monument and to reflect on the challenges and dilemmas of change and continuity.

Blending the old with the new: designs with heritage in mind
There are few more challenging design problems for architects than responding to an existing building or designing within a heritage context. This is especially true when there is a perception that the controls which come into play may prevent the creation of the heritage of tomorrow.

The Royal Australian Institute of Architects, with sponsorship from the Tasmanian Heritage Council, are presenting a seminar to show how interstate and Tasmanian architects have responded to the challenges and produced high quality and innovative architecture which successfully blends the old and the new. In doing so, an evolving built environment is created which benefits the community at large. Peter Mallet from Six Degrees, Peter Walker from Morris-Nunn and Associates and Ian Boersma and Chris Bonner from Heritage Tasmania will discuss the heritage issues facing specific projects
