NEW ITEM: Australia ICOMOS makes urgent request to WA Premier to withdraw the WA Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Bill 2021

Australia ICOMOS has written to the WA Premier to express its deep concern that the Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Bill 2021 is being rushed through Parliament and will result in very poor outcomes for Aboriginal peoples and their heritage. The Bill is deeply flawed. Australia ICOMOS has urgently called for the Bill to be withdrawn and for further development of this legislation. We understand the Bill has been introduced to both houses of the Western Australian Parliament and is due to be voted on imminently with limited debate. The Bill needs to be substantially revised to address the significant issues it contains. In its current form the Bill does not provide respect for Indigenous Western Australians or good heritage protection.

The submission can be viewed here.

Other recent submissions by Australia ICOMOS include:

  • Submission on the Proposal to Raise the Warragamba Dam Wall
  • Submission on Tasmanian Planning Policies
  • Submission on the draft strategy and management plan for Carlton Gardens and the Royal Exhibition Building.

All Australia ICOMOS submissions can be found here.

NEW ITEM: David Logan awarded Honorary Membership of Australia ICOMOS

Congratulations to David Logan, who was awarded Honorary Membership at the November AGM of Australia ICOMOS.

David became a member of Australia ICOMOS in the early 1980s. He served on the Australia ICOMOS National Executive Committee from 1993 to 1999 and was elected Vice President in 1997 and again in 1998. During that time, David coordinated the Australia ICOMOS Cultural Heritage Places Policy document and was a member of the Burra Charter working group which drafted revisions to the Charter.

David has been a member of the ICOMOS International Scientific Committee on Historic Cities, Towns and Villages (CIVVIH) since 2009 and has served as Vice-President of this Committee since 2017. He was instrumental in establishing the Asia-Pacific Subcommittee of CIVVIH in 2018, an express purpose being to promote HUL in the region. He was appointed by ICOMOS to assist the newly-established HUL Focal Point Group in 2018.

David has undertaken World Heritage monitoring (State of Conservation) missions on behalf of ICOMOS and has also undertaken several World Monuments Funds desktop reviews on behalf of ICOMOS. Locally, David has contributed to several Australia ICOMOS working groups and to many advocacy submissions made by Australia ICOMOS. He has served as the Australian voting member on CIVVIH since 2009. 

David has made an extraordinary contribution to the development of the heritage industry and the application of heritage principles in the planning domain through his presentations, publications, training workshops, advocacy, and consulting projects. In the course of a career committed to responsible heritage outcomes he has undertaken thousands of heritage consulting projects throughout Sydney and across NSW, Australia and overseas. In the process he has led, guided and mentored hundreds of staff, colleagues and students.

NEW ITEM: The Climate.Culture.Peace conference (24-28 January, 2022) is calling for contributions | deadline 22 December 2021

ICCROM’s flagship programme – FAR (First Aid and Resilience for Cultural Heritage in Times of Crisis) and the British Council’s Cultural Protection Fund have formed an alliance, for the upcoming innovative project– Climate. Culture. Peace. Australia ICOMOS is a conference partner.

The conference aims to highlight the risks to heritage stemming from climate change, gather evidence of how the knowledge embedded in heritage can be used to promote climate resilience, facilitate inter-agency dialogue and highlight good practices and innovative strategies.

Join us and contribute to a knowledge-building initiative connecting climate change to the diversity of human cultures and heritage. 

To read the call, please go to the ICCROM website.
To access the web form click here 

Proposal deadline: 22 December 2021

Climate.Culture.Peace aims to share and exchange knowledge, research, practices and capacities through a multi-day virtual conference, knowledge portal, and network of invested communities and individuals. 

This initiative is generously supported by the British Council’s Cultural Protection Fund (CPF) in partnership with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS). 

The conference seeks participation from all around the world; contributions from the CPF target countries (Afghanistan, Egypt, Ethiopia, Iraq, Jordan, Kenya, Lebanon, Libya, Palestinian Territories, Rwanda, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria, Tanzania, Tunisia, Turkey, Uganda and Yemen) across the Middle East and Africa are particularly encouraged.

Culture can and should play a role in reducing the impacts of climate change.

To guide this initiative, Climate.Culture.Peace outlines four themes that broadly capture how culture and heritage are intertwined with climate change and human experiences of peace, conflict, and disasters. These themes may be interpreted broadly and creatively.

  • Culture – the missing link
  • Climate change as a risk driver for culture and people
  • Culture-based mitigation, adaptation and renewal 
  • State of knowledge and action

Do you have a story to share? 

Do you have research, knowledge, experiences, art or ideas on the connection between climate change, culture and heritage, disaster resilience, peace and peace-building, or conflict? With this call, we warmly invite you to submit a proposal for contribution using our web-platform.
