An Australian Heritage Conference (incorporating SA Perspectives) is to be held at Rymill House on 18 April 2013 together with the Heritage Icons Gala Dinner. This conference represents an opportunity to discover and contribute to making heritage the heartbeat of Adelaide and South Australia by contributing to progressive heritage and planning policy. The 2013 conference invites diverse stakeholders to focus on the “value of heritage” from National, South Australian and local heritage perspectives and regulatory regimes.
The agenda aims to explore the dimensions of the “value of heritage”:
- determining the drivers of the economics of heritage
- debating appropriate policies to unlock the value of heritage uncovering techniques to promote heritage nationally and internationally
- integrating cities and rural regions
- understanding and benchmarking best practice in managing and creating value in heritage
- considering progressive ways to better restore, sustain and enrich heritage for future generations
The desired outcomes of this Conference are to:
- Have speakers provide practical recommendations in relation to their topics presented to affect the aims of the Conference
- Have speakers form a Panel discuss and debate those recommendations with Conference delegates
- Draw conclusions and provide a summary of the Conference findings to policy makers and relevant stakeholders for consideration and action

Hearts of iron? Lawyers in Van Diemen’s Land, 1824-1836
presented by Associate Professor Stefan Petrow
Between 1824 when the Supreme Court of Van Diemen’s Land was established and 1836 when Lieutenant-Governor George Arthur left office, public opinion as reflected in the newspapers typically wrote in unflattering terms about lawyers. They were often called ‘the sharp practicing gentry’, sharks who, often in league with the reviled banks, fed on the distress of struggling colonists. Their fees added to the high cost of living and led many colonists to bankruptcy and destitution. While many colonists felt the pinch of a vulnerable economy, lawyers prospered and many accumulated substantial fortunes not least by lending money at high interest rates. But was this negative image the only way lawyers were portrayed in the press? Did lawyers have no redeeming features in this volatile penal colony, where abuse was a popular hobby? What attempts were made to limit the fees charged by lawyers or did any lower their fees voluntarily? To answer these and other questions this paper will analyse the evidence that has survived about how lawyers were perceived, mainly in the newspapers but also in private letters and literary works.
Stefan Petrow teaches Australian, British and European history in the School of History and Classics at the University of Tasmania. His research interests include the legal history of Tasmania.
When: Thursday 11 April, 2013, 5.30pm
Where: Junior Medical Officer’s Conference Room, Port Arthur Historic Site

Place-making in national parks: A study of the engagement of Arab and Vietnamese Australians with parklands along the Georges River, NSW
The 143 page publication on this study is now available as a free download from here.
This innovative study examines the way Arab and Vietnamese migrants engage in practices of place-making activities that turn national park environments into familiar places of attachment. The authors, Denis Byrne (OEH), Heather Goodall (UTS) and Allison Cadzow (UTS), draw on their in-depth interviews, focus group discussions, and field observations to provide an insight into how the park environment looks and feels to recent migrants. They reveal how activities like picnicking, walking, fishing and even jet-skiing are critical to the development of a sense of belonging there. For many of the interviewees, these activities constitute their first experience of the Australian natural environment. Place-making in National Parks also examines traditions of park creation, park use, and nature visitation in Asia and the Middle East and analyses migrant place-making in the context of everyday multiculturalism. It engages with the key issues of social equity and transnationalism in the context of park management.
The ICOMOS Scientific Council (SC) is making preparations for its next Scientific Symposium, taking place on the occasion of the 2013 Advisory Committee meeting in San José, Costa Rica on 10 October, under the three-year theme of “Tangible Risks, Intangible Opportunities: Long-Term Risk Preparedness and Responses for Threats to Cultural Heritage”.
The 2013 Symposium is being led by co-chairs Sofia Avgerinou-Kolonias (CIVVIH – Historic Cities and Villages President) and Gisle Jakhelln (CIAV – Vernacular Architecture President) and is entitled “Reducing Risks to Cultural Heritage from Uncontrolled Development in a Globalised World”.

XXIV International CIPA Symposium
“Recording, Documentation and Cooperation for Cultural Heritage“
2-6 September, 2013
Paper & abstract deadline: 10 April 2013
CIPA Heritage Documentation is a dynamic international organization that has twin responsibilities: keeping up with technology and ensuring its usefulness for cultural heritage conservation, education and dissemination.

CIPA accomplish these two sometimes conflicting goals in a variety of ways. CIPA’s bi-annual congress provides a platform for the exchange of ideas, best practices as well as scientific research papers. We wish to celebrate our 45th anniversary in Strasbourg, France at our XXIVth International Symposium.
CIPA 2013 will not only be a technology platform to learn about heritage documentation best practices and research, but also an unique opportunity to learn about key initiatives around the world.
Consider submitting either a scientific paper for peer review or a practical project paper.

26. SITUATION VACANT Call for expressions of interest: Mapping Ballarat’s Historic Urban Landscapes (Stage 1)
The City of Ballarat is calling for expressions of interest from heritage consultants to undertake stage 1 of the Mapping Ballarat’s Historic Urban Landscapes project.
The City of Ballarat has the unique opportunity of being involved in a world’s best practice approach to managing historic cities as part of an Asia-Pacific wide pilot of UNESCO’s Recommendation on the Historic Urban Landscape (HUL). The HUL approach improves on traditional conservation approaches by ensuring that all of a historic city is considered (natural, cultural/social and historic) and that there is an understanding that historic cities have and will always continue to evolve and change. At the same time it ensures that any change that may adversely impact those things that make a historic city unique is controlled and managed. It does this in a holistic, integrated, community-led, locally relevant and therefore realistic way.
The aim of the Mapping Ballarat’s Historic Urban Landscape project (Stage 1 & 2) is to undertake comprehensive surveys and mapping of Ballarat’s natural, cultural and historic landscape as well as providing an overarching statement of Ballarat’s significant historic urban landscape values (Ballarat Statement of Significance). The study and overarching Statement of Significance will enable evidence-based and integrated management of Ballarat’s historic urban landscape and will be a critical component of the Ballarat Council’s Today, Tomorrow, Together: The Ballarat Strategy, which is currently under development.
If you would like a copy of the project brief for Stage 1 or have general questions regarding timing, budget or other, please do not hesitate to email Susan Fayad or contact Susan by phone (03) 5320 5677.
