3. [NEW ITEM] Deakin University Cultural Heritage Seminar, Melbourne, Wednesday 27 June

Deakin University’s next Cultural Heritage Seminar will be a presentation by Arek Dybel (POLIN Museum, Warsaw), on “Presenting a challenging historical narrative through multimedia: the case study of the POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews”.

Abstract

The POLIN Museum, which opened in Warsaw, Poland, in October 2014, tells the 1000 year story of Polish Jews, once one of the largest communities in the world. A story which ended abruptly and violently with the Nazi occupation of Poland in 1939 and during which the large majority of the Jewish population of Poland was destroyed. The exhibition team aimed at creating a meaningful educational institution to bring to light an untold chapter in Polish-Jewish history. Acclaimed as “the most ambitious cultural institution to rise in Poland since the fall of Communism” by the New York Times and the winner of the 2016 European Museum of the Year Award, the Museum tells a story of vibrance and richness of Jewish culture from the middle ages until today, but also shows the complexity of the Polish-Jewish relationship. The presentation will provide an overview of the way the exhibition handled its narrative, especially the role of multimedia as a way to expand on artefacts and create a richer storyline but also the challenges and limitations of this type of tool.

Biography

Arek Dybel’s area of expertise is to design and develop audio-visual and motion-driven projects for museum exhibitions and educational environments. As Creative Director of Multimedia at the Museum POLIN in Warsaw, he was part of the design team, responsible for the core exhibition’s multimedia design and production workflow. The process involved managing the creation of more than 200 multimedia elements for the core exhibition. Arek worked extensively with curators and scholars to translate complex materials into a visitor-friendly visual narrative, including with the museum’s Chief Curator Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett.

Date: Wednesday 27 June 2018

Time: 5.00pm

Venue: Deakin Downtown, 727 Collins St, Tower 2, Level 12

Venue Tip: Deakin’s new city centre campus is between Southern Cross Station and Docklands, on tram routes 11 and 48 (Stop D15). Entry is via Tower Two. The reception desk directs you to an escalator to a bank of lifts and Deakin Downtown is on Level 12.

4. [NEW ITEM] Port Arthur Talk, Thursday 21 June

‘The evacuation of that scene of wickedness and wretchedness’:
Jeremy Bentham and his panopticon penitentiary versus New South Wales
presented by Dr Tim Causer

By the 19th century, the ‘panopticon’ prison paradigm, as envisioned by famed philosopher Jeremy Bentham, had received limited support in Britain due to the prevalence of transportation to New South Wales. In retaliation to what he believed to be a conspiracy against his works and the will of parliament, Bentham began to write a thousand-page manuscript titled ‘A Picture of the Treasury’ so as to expose the violation of justice and constitution that transportation represented. This talk shall cover Bentham’s opposition to transportation, the impact that the singular published section of the ‘Picture’ caused and how crowdsourced transcription plus volunteer transcribers are contributing to the production of the Collected Works of Jeremy Bentham.

Tim Causer is a Senior Research Associate at the Bentham Project, in the Faculty of Laws, University College London. He is currently working on Bentham’s writings on Australia, transportation, and colonialism, which will make up a volume of Bentham’s Collected Works. Since the completion of his PhD on the Norfolk Island penal settlement he has also co-ordinated the award-winning crowdsourced transcription initiative, Transcribe Bentham and published the earliest Australian convict narrative, titled Memorandoms by James Martin.

When: Thursday 21 June 2018 at 5.30pm

Where: Junior Medical Officer’s House Conference Room (rear of the house), Port Arthur Historic Site

5. [NEW ITEM] National Museum’s Songlines exhibition wins most prestigious award for a museum or gallery show in 2018 – National Museum of Australia media release

Australia ICOMOS is committed to the dissemination of relevant cultural heritage information. In line with this commitment we are circulating the following media release from the National Museum of Australia, dated 6 June 2018.

The National Museum of Australia’s blockbuster Songlines: Tracking the Seven Sisters exhibition, which showcases the ancient Seven Sisters Indigenous creation saga, has won the nation’s most prestigious award for a museum or gallery show in 2018.

Judged to be the most outstanding exhibition of the year, Songlines received the Best In Show award at the annual Museums and Galleries National Awards (MAGNA) ceremony, held in in Melbourne on Tuesday 5 June 2018.

A world first in scale and complexity, Songlines showcases sections of five Indigenous Western and Central Desert songlines, telling the story of a journey made by a group of female Ancestral beings who are pursued by a powerful mythological, shape-shifting figure.

The breakthrough exhibition of stunning paintings, objects and interactive multimedia was led and co-created by Indigenous communities and traverses three Indigenous lands – APY (Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara); Ngaanyatjarra and Martu.

‘This award is really a tribute to the work of the APY, Ngaanyatjarra and Martu people who led this project and worked with the National Museum to share and preserve the foundation stories of our ancient continent,’ said National Museum director Dr Mathew Trinca.

‘These communities opened their hearts and minds to share their Seven Sisters narratives with the world,’ he said. ‘The exhibition tells a story that resonates globally and places Indigenous story telling at the centre of the national imagination,’ said Dr Trinca.

The National Museum’s Songlines senior curator Margo Neale said that Songlines sets a new benchmark for Indigenous storytelling in museums.

‘This exhibition was initiated and co-curated by Indigenous communities who wanted to both preserve their culture for future generations and to share their stories with all Australians and the world – this is the model for future Museum-Indigenous community collaborations going forward,’ said Ms Neale.

Key paintings and objects from the Songlines exhibition were centre-stage at the March 2018 Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Special Summit in Sydney and the National Museum plans to tour the exhibition nationally and internationally.

MAGNA is open to all non-commercial museums and galleries and other cultural and collecting institutions who are members of Museums Galleries Australia. MAGNA is sponsored by Panasonic.

7. [NEW ITEM] SA Planning and Design Code discussion paper out for public consultation

The SA Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure has released an important discussion paper on how the state’s new Planning and Design Code will work.

Called The Planning and Design Code – How will it work?, the paper sets out the proposed functional framework for the Code, including what it will include and what it will not include.

Significantly it describes what the first generation of the Code will look like in 2020, such as how it will be structured, maintained and delivered, and how South Australia’s new ePlanning system will dramatically change the way development applications are assessed.

The development of this paper has involved considerable collaboration with planning and development professionals.

The discussion paper is now out for public consultation until 22 July 2018 and all interested parties are encouraged to provide comment via the SA Planning Portal.

The consultation period represents a significant opportunity for planning practitioners and council strategists to shape the future operation of their state-wide planning rules.

Community engagement is at the heart of the new planning system; as such, genuine and inclusive collaboration with the planning and development community in the refinement of the Code is a crucial step in securing the success of the state’s planning future.

All feedback received on the operational framework for the Code is highly valued by the Department and will be considered in the development of the first and subsequent generations of the Code.

16. [NEW ISSUE] Engineering Heritage Australia Quarterly Magazine – special issue available

This special issue of the EHA magazine (May 2018 – Vol 2 No 8) is all about the 19th Australasian Engineering Heritage Conference, held in Mildura, Victoria, in October 2017.

The theme of the conference was Putting Water to Work: from the steam power that opened Australia’s inland waterways to navigation in the 19th century to the nation-building irrigation and water supply schemes that capitalised on Australia’s most precious resource. The theme was directly related to the choice of Mildura as the venue for the Conference. Mildura is situated in the heart of the Sunraysia district in north-west Victoria on the River Murray, Australia’s longest river. The river is the reason Mildura became historically important in development of the irrigation systems that spread out along the Murray, Darling and Murrumbidgee catchments and changed the nature of agriculture in Australia.

27 papers were presented at the conference. Most were related to the watery theme in some way. Authors were invited to provide a story, based on the topic of their paper, for this issue of the magazine, and 13 did so. The stories ranged widely – from aboriginal built fish traps in the Barwon-Darling catchment to the Significance of Windmills to Punts, Pontoons and Ferries, to an early concrete sewer aqueduct, and much more.

TALK: Architecture after Rome, 28 June, University of Melbourne

Much mystery still surrounds the architecture of the Dark Ages, when supposedly barbarian tribes imposed themselves upon Europe, and the early Medieval period which followed. But it is clear that enough of the traditions of Rome survived in pockets, to later re-emerge as the Romanesque. Nowhere is there more evidence of the process than in Spain, where the evolution from the late antique can be traced through the Visigothic, Asturian, Mozarab, First Romanesque and Mudejar. There are surprising links with the classical tradition, and with Syria, North Africa, Saxon England, and Lombardy. All this is illustrated in a range of sturdy and picturesque churches, mainly in remote locations, and built under conditions which it is hard to imagine today.

Presented by Miles Lewis.

Date & time: 28 June, 6.00pm for a 6.30 start

Venue: Malaysian Theatre, MSD Building, The University of Melbourne

Background

The UNESCO World Heritage Committee has observed that many activities, such as tourism, infrastructure development, new buildings, urban renewal and changes to the land use being undertaken in and around World Heritage sites, may have negative impacts on the Outstanding Universal Value (OUV). While recognising the vital role of such activities for providing benefits to the society, the Committee has stressed the need to undertake Impact Assessment studies, in order to assess the potential negative and positive impacts on heritage sites. As part of its mandate to build capacities of State Parties to the World Heritage Convention, WHITRAP together with ICCROM has organised four training courses in the past and is pleased to announce its fifth version on Impact Assessments to be held in October 2018. This year, the course is also linked to the World Heritage Leadership programme in order to expand its focus on all forms of Impact Assessments (SEA, EIA, HIA) and also the promote the benefits of linking nature and culture in managing heritage.
