Do you want to know more about an Indigenous-led cultural landscape assessment methodology being applied in Aotearoa / New Zealand?
Ailsa Cain (Ngāi Tahu) and Stevie Blair (Ngāi Tahu) will outline an Indigenous designed and lead landscape assessment methodology based on epistemological traditions of the Indigenous people of southern New Zealand. They will discuss the drivers for the methodology, the confidence and visibility it has given that Indigenous community, and what next for all.

NEW Macquarie Street Walk – Discover Sydney’s heritage on foot
A walk down Sydney’s Macquarie Street showcases some of Sydney’s amazing cultural sites – including the Sydney Opera House, Royal Botanic Gardens, The Mint, and Hyde Park Barracks.
Macquarie Street extends from Hyde Park in the south, to the Sydney Opera House in the north, and its rich layered history is reflected in the associated landscape and buildings. The iconic street was named after Lachlan Macquarie, an early Governor of New South Wales.
Some places to explore on a self-guided Macquarie Street Walk:
Sydney Opera House
Described as “a great architectural work of the 20th century that brings together multiple strands of creativity and innovation in both architectural form and structural design,” the Opera House was inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 2007, and is the only building to be inscribed on the World Heritage List while its designer, Danish architect Jørn Utzon, was still alive.
Sydney Opera House will be the venue for the GA2023 Opening Ceremony and delegates can also enjoy discounted tours.

Royal Botanic Gardens – Bara Sculpture
The Tarpeian Precinct of the Royal Botanic Gardens is home to the Bara Sculpture, a major artwork by Judy Watson, designed to celebrate the First People of Sydney, the traditional custodians of Gadigal Country. This monument is a powerful expression of Aboriginal cultures, inspired by shell fish hooks, honouring local Aboriginal women who used them for generations. It will be the venue for the Welcome to Country for Indigenous delegates to GA2023.
A visit to Royal Botanic Gardens offers the chance to enjoy Australian native plants. Take a small detour to immerse yourself in a meandering garden that includes a celebration of Australia’s unique rainforest plants.

Don’t forget to make time to stop off at The Mint – formerly the ‘Rum Hospital’ – the oldest surviving public building in Sydney’s CBD, and now the headquarters of Museums of History NSW. You can grab a quick bite or barista coffee at the Bullion Store Cafe.

Hyde Park Barracks
Hyde Park Barracks, one of the eleven sites that together comprise the Australian Convict Sites World Heritage Property, is now an immersive heritage museum. Originally built to house convicts, the Barracks has also served as an immigration depot, asylum, law courts and government offices. GA2023 delegates can enjoy free entry, and can book for a special curator-led breakfast tour on 6 September. Book tickets via the GA2023 registration form.

NEW Diaspora Celebrations at GA2023 – China, India, Pacific
Australia is home to numerous communities with global roots, all of whom arrived under diﬀerent circumstances but continue to sustain living cultural identities as rich parts of Australian society.

NEW Call for papers Special issue in Tourism Geographies| Historical Geographies of Tourism: Moments, Monuments and Methods
The overarching question this special issue asks can be described as follows: what is the conceptual relationship between history, geography, and tourism research? While in broad terms they are interrelated, these connections tend to be assumed, and accepted but rarely critically examined or fully understood in tourism scholarship.
Tourism Geographies is a peer-reviewed journal which explores tourism and tourism-related areas of recreation and leisure studies from a geographic perspective. This journal brings together academic and applied research and regional traditions from around the world, including multi-disciplinary approaches from geography and related fields such as anthropology and other social sciences, landscape architecture, urban and regional planning, and environmental science and management (see https://www.tandfonline.com/journals/rtxg20). The 2022 Scopus Cite Score for the journal is 22.

The Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Act 2021 (the Act) was proclaimed on 1 July 2023. Education sessions are being held around the State, and they will continue to be scheduled over the coming weeks and months to support transition to the new system.
The Act is the State’s legislative instrument for the protection of Aboriginal cultural heritage, replacing the Aboriginal Heritage Act 1972.
It provides a modern framework for the recognition, protection, conservation, and preservation of Aboriginal cultural heritage while recognising the fundamental importance of Aboriginal cultural heritage to Aboriginal people.
Fact sheets and webinars have been prepared to provide an overview of the new Act.
Key guidelines to support the Act have been released following an extensive co-design process with stakeholders across Western Australia.
A series of education workshops to support the implementation of the new legislation have been held. Watch a recording of an online educational workshop below.
DPLH is now facilitating education workshops throughout the State to support the implementation of the new legislation. The workshops will provide an overview of the Act, along with guidelines and regulations, the commencement process and will provide an opportunity for attendees to ask questions.

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
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.
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.
