NEW Latest GA2023 News and Updates
Click here to access the latest news and updates for the 21st Triennial General Assembly and Scientific Symposium of ICOMOS, which will be hosted in Sydney in August – September 2023.
NEW Heritage Changes: What’s that about?
‘Heritage Changes’ is the overarching theme of GA2023. The concept of heritage has changed and expanded from monuments (Pyramids, Egypt), historic city centres (City of Quito, Ecuador), and archaeological sites (Pompeii, Italy) to include modern structures (Sydney Opera House), industrial ruins (Hashima Island, Japan), maritime heritage (Titanic), cultural landscapes (Uluṟu-Kata Tjuṯa National Park), events in outer space (lunar footprints), digital heritage (3D reconstruction of Notre Dame Cathedral), cultural practices (Australian Indigenous smoking ceremonies), and everyday heritage (family heirloom objects). AND, heritage has also changed the way we engage with tourism, sustainability, climate change, First Nations, human rights, animal extinctions, planetary care, and human health and wellbeing.
Share your insights on ‘heritage changes’ with more than 1,200 colleagues at GA2023. You can do this at more than 80 Scientific Symposium sessions, the 3-day Youth Forum, a wide range of workshops, a day trip to the Greater Blue Mountains, and as public conversations in the 5-day Heritage Exposition.
NEW Australian Museum – Exclusive Behind the Scenes Tours
Experience a rare chance to peek behind the scenes of the Australian Museum and unlock 190 years of extraordinary collections that explore nature and culture. In an exclusive ‘Behind the Scenes’ tour, with expert curators and the Museum’s heritage architect and ICOMOS Board Member Peter Phillips AO, participants will be guided through a world of heritage, collections, and scientific marvels.
The Australian Museum – Heritage Buildings, Collections and Science Exclusive Behind the Scenes Tours are available Monday 4, Tuesday 5 and Wednesday 6 September from 7am – 8.30am.
Immerse yourself in the rich tapestry of Australia’s cultural heritage as you explore the meticulously documented heritage buildings that house a treasure trove of natural and cultural insight. The Museum building itself is a rare part of Sydney’s built heritage, having begun construction in 1846, before its recent major conservation and adaptation project.
The Australian Museum is proudly engaged in scientific research and museum science and is a uniquely rich source of scientific enquiry due to its impressive collections. Take your chance to be a part of this rich environment and see behind the scenes at this internationally recognised institution.
Join us for an unforgettable exclusive journey through the collections.

Vale Gerald T. Takano, AIA
Members of Australia ICOMOS will be saddened to hear of the death of Gerry T. Takano, AIA in early April, this year. Gerry was a heritage architect and urban planner and a member of US ICOMOS. He had been diagnosed with oesophageal and stomach cancer in late 2022 after a fall while gardening. From the early 1980s he helped foster a strong link between US/ICOMOS and Australia ICOMOS in the emerging interests of historic roads and cultural routes and, from the early 2000s, ICOMOS Pasifika.
Born and reared in Honolulu, Gerry had a proudly Japanese ethnic background with a Pan-Pacific and strongly democratic outlook. He had a relaxed, Island approach to life but this was balanced by a sophisticated East Coast sensibility from his professional architectural education and early training in upstate New York and Boston. Gerry served as Hawaii’s National Trust Advisor, as Commissioner for the State’s Historic Sites Review Board and previously was Senior Program Associate at the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s San Francisco office.
Gerry was president of the practice, TBA West Inc., based in the San Francisco Bay Area and affiliated with Boston’s TBA Architects. His projects were in a variety of locations from Hawaii and California to New England, Indonesia, Australia, the Philippines and Guam. In Fiji, he lived for a year in the town of Levuka, the original British capital of Fiji, now World Heritage listed. He consolidated the early work there of Justin Francis, Peter James, Timothy Hubbard and, subsequently, of many other Australia ICOMOS members. Using the well-established Burra Charter model, he worked with the local government to promote rehabilitation, encourage conservation and establish management guidelines. That work was celebrated at the joint ICOMOS Pasifika/Australia ICOMOS conference ‘Culture, Conserving it Together’ in 2018 and on a return visit to Levuka, when he contributed to the workshop on the development of the ‘ICOMOS Pasifika Heritage Charter’.
In 2010, Gerry was invited to be a Plenary Speaker at the Australia ICOMOS conference ‘Outback and Beyond’ in Broken Hill. His topic was ‘Beyond Sentiment: Financing the Rehabilitation and Restoration of Historic Company Towns’, which focussed on selected California sites challenged with new social attitudes, a weakened American economy, and decades of car-oriented, suburban planning directives.
Gerald Takano died peacefully in his sleep at home in Guerneville, CA aged 75. He is survived by Michael, his partner, subsequently his spouse, of more than forty years.

This talk presents the results of a study that reveals the patterns of hidden values in cultural landscapes and offers an innovative method for the collection, analysis and visualisation of individual “stories”, using remote survey methods combined with Artificial Intelligence to create deep maps of attachment. This dataset, integrated into the traditional heritage datasets and assessment framework, can provide the people-centred background or insider knowledge necessary to facilitate sustainable, inclusive and transparent heritage management practices.
Martina is a PhD researcher at the University of York (UK), Department of Archaeology, focusing on methods for analysis and visualisation of public perception in cultural landscapes. Martina holds degrees in Landscape Archaeology and Prehistory and Classical Archaeology. Martina’s research interests include Contemporary Archaeology; Historic Landscape Characterisation; landscapes of biodiversity and climate change impact; and Artificial Intelligence in heritage management.
International Festival of Luoghi Parlanti (Talking Places), The World in Florence | Hybrid | 21-23 November 2023, CEST
We are pleased to invite you to participate in the third edition of the International Festival of Luoghi Parlanti (Talking Places), The World in Florence, which will be held again this year in a hybrid format (in-person and remote), in Florence, from November 21st to 23rd, 2023.
The previous editions in 2021 and 2022 brought together over 140 speakers from 37 countries across 5 continents to share and compare their experiences and attend high-level interventions in the field of cultural and natural heritage.
Throughout our over thirty-year history, we have emphasized how cultural heritage is a powerful tool for uniting people worldwide and can strongly contribute to sustainable territorial development and peaceful coexistence. The issues of the contemporary world, such as the effects of climate change and war, make these activities of comparison more and more necessary, finding synergies between the world of theory and that of practice, in order to direct all activities towards more sustainable and ethical practices.
Therefore, Festival participants (universities, local administrations, cultural operators, and businesses) will be called upon to tell the story of their territories through a storytelling of their traditional knowledge and cultural, tangible, intangible, and natural heritage, making the Festival a place for exchanging and sharing good practices from all over the world, where they can interact with various categories of interlocutors.
We trust that you share the goals of the Festival and that you will want to participate and contribute to the knowledge and enhancement of your territory and its spirit. We invite you to download the participation call at www.theworldinflorence.com
Discounted Early Bird Registration is Extended to July 31 2023
NEW Launch of Connecting with Country Framework
This week, Minister for Planning and Public Spaces, Paul Scully launched the NSW Government Architect’s Connecting with Country Framework.
The framework provides guidance for government, planners, designers and industry on how to respond to Country in the planning, design and delivery of built environment projects in NSW. It aims to help better recognise indigenous culture in planning and design, empower Aboriginal voices and learn from and work with Aboriginal communities to promote sustainability, resilience and community health.
The framework has been released in draft since 2020, and its finalisation has involved extensive engagement with Aboriginal communities and Aboriginal Consultants to ensure practical guidance and outcomes on designing with Country, and we would like to extend our thanks to all those involved in this process.
To hear more about the final framework, we encourage you to view this webinar.
Heritage and climate change – new Victorian guidance to assist in understanding the vulnerability of heritage places and objects to the impacts of climate change
The Heritage Council of Victoria, in partnership with Heritage Victoria, has just released new guidance to help owners and managers of heritage places and objects to consider the vulnerability of their place or object to the impacts of climate change.
The resources can be found on the Heritage Council’s website: Heritage and climate change.
The Heritage Council would like to thank Heritage Victoria for their partnership and dedication to the project that has produced these resources. They would also like to acknowledge the work and expertise of Extent Heritage, Point Advisory, Carrig Conservation International and GML Heritage in their development of the different resources.
The Heritage Council would also like to thank the Anglican Parish of Warrnambool, Charter Hall, Forest, Fire and Regions (Department of Energy, Environment and Climate Action), the National Trust (Victoria), Parks Victoria and the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne for providing information and images for use in the 10 case studies.
Difficult Conversations | 2023 | Ursula Frederick, Ashley Harrison, Tracy Ireland and Justin Magee | British Council
A new open access book edited by Ursula Frederick, Ashley Harrison, Tracy Ireland and Justin Magee brings together cultural heritage and creative arts perspectives to explore the role of culture and art in giving voice to often silenced social issues. The essays, poems and artwork contained within powerfully demonstrate, collectively and individually, how arts research can inspire us to think differently about injustice and inequality in our societies. They show how artists, performers, poets, curators and cultural researchers can all trigger meaningful, and potentially reparative, engagement with past trauma and conflicts and their lingering impacts in the present day. With a primary focus on the contexts of Australia and Northern Ireland, but including also discussions relating to Japan, Canada, Chile and attending to themes that are of global relevance, this volume, and the wider Difficult Conversations project of which it is part, present a diverse, eloquent and provocative statement on the potential of the arts and culture to encourage dialogue and to help build trust and understanding.
