Expressions of interest are invited from individuals wishing to join the ‘Youth Forum Sub-Committee’ of the Executive Committee for the Twentieth Triennial General Assembly of ICOMOS, which will be held in Sydney in October 2020 (GA 2020).

The Youth Forum is a key component of GA 2020 and will be held on the preceding weekend to the main programme (ie. 2-4 October 2020).

The Youth Forum will welcome emerging heritage professionals from across the world to share skills and experiences, debate contemporary heritage issues, discuss innovative practices and pose outcomes for the future of heritage.

The Youth Forum will provide important contributions to the main GA 2020 programme and it is expected that most Youth Forum participants will attend the rest of GA 2020. 

We encourage expressions of interest from energetic, experienced and engaged Australia ICOMOS members interested in helping to organise this event. We anticipate that the Youth Forum Sub-Committee would reflect the demographic and diversity of attendees to the Youth Forum: emerging professionals, particularly those aged under 35.

Expressions of interest should:

  • be no more than 2 pages in length
  • state the reason why the applicant seeks appointment

4. [NEW ITEM] THEY’RE HERE! Tasmanian Heritage Symposia: Exploring Cultural Landscapes & Science Heritage, 9-12 November 2018

Australia ICOMOS Heritage Symposia
Exploring Cultural Landscapes And Science Heritage
  Initial Information & Call For Papers
Hobart, Tasmania, November 2018

Australia ICOMOS is holding two back-to-back Symposia in Hobart over 10-12 November 2018. The Cultural Landscape Diversity & the Implications for Management Symposium (10-11 November) and the Under the Microscope – Exploring Science Heritage Symposium (11-12 November) are timely fora to review and discuss the identification and management of these two aspects of cultural heritage – one an established, but rapidly developing area, and the other relatively invisible and little known.

  • Cultural Landscape Diversity & the Implications for Management Symposium – this symposium is aimed at exploring the diversity of cultural landscapes and what this diversity means for the identification, categorisation, assessment and management of cultural landscapes. It is intended as an opportunity to review where Australia is at in relation to the conservation of cultural landscapes, and to explore how best practice in this area can be maintained into the future.
  • Under the Microscope – Exploring Science Heritage Symposium – this symposium will shine light on the physical heritage of Australia’s long history of science and innovation and the identification and conservation of this ‘science heritage’. It is designed to be a multidisciplinary dialogue that explores the heritage of Australian science, including what science heritage is, what significant science heritage we have in Australia, and whether there are particular management needs for the conservation of this heritage.

The symposia are open to all people with an interest in cultural landscapes and/or science heritage. Each symposium will be a combination of presented papers with opportunities for discussion of the issues raised and the implications and needs for heritage conservation. A joint symposia field excursion on Sunday 11 November will present symposia participants with the opportunity to visit some outstanding and diverse Tasmanian cultural landscapes and science heritage sites within southeastern Tasmania.

More information on the two symposia (including the full call for papers) can be found at the Australia ICOMOS website. 

Additional events

The Australia ICOMOS 2018 AGM will be held on Friday 9 November in the late afternoon; and the NSC-CLCR  annual meeting will be held on Saturday 10 November immediately following the Cultural Landscapes Symposium. Members are encouraged to also attend these events.

The symposia registration fees are:

  • Cultural Landscapes Symposium – $85 per person
  • Science Heritage Symposium – $85 per person
  • Joint Symposia Excursion** – $95 per person

Registrations will open on Monday 20 August, and will close on Sunday 28 October.

**Please Note – registration for the Symposia Excursion is only open to individuals who also register for either/both of the symposiums.

Registrations will open on Monday 20 August, and will close on Sunday 28 October – further information will follow in upcoming newsletters.

Call for papers

We are now calling  for papers for presentation at the Symposium. The deadline for submissions is Monday 8 October (for Science Heritage papers) & Monday 15 October (for Cultural Landscape papers) . Submissions should be sent to the Symposium Coordinator, Anne McConnell by email, and should include the presenter’s name, contact details and affiliation, and an abstract of no more than 250 words of your proposed paper. The full call for papers can be found at the Australia ICOMOS website.

This is a rare opportunity to discuss cultural heritage in a Tasmanian setting and to visit some special and unusual Tasmanian heritage places. We welcome your participation.

6. [NEW ITEM] Port Arthur Talk, 21 August 2018

“I always worked hard for my living but hunger drove me to it”: life after Port Arthur
presented by Dr Dr Julia Clark

Irishman John Finelly/Finlay was accounting to the court for his theft of pork and clothing at Evandale in 1872. One of the minority of transportees who reoffended, his defence in court shed light on his struggle to survive in Tasmania.  Why did men like him remain enmeshed in the convict system for decades, despite the bright promise of the New World?

This presentation will argue that this colonial society relentlessly and remorselessly drove men like John Finelly into lives composed of cycles of poverty, offending and incarceration.

Trained as an archaeologist, and having worked in museums, galleries and as a consultant, Julia spent the last 12 years of her career as manager of Interpretation and Collections at Port Arthur, where she was able to combine her interest in convict history and photography in research that has become her PhD thesis.

When: Tuesday 21 August 2018 at 5.30pm

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

7. [NEW ITEM] Australia ICOMOS Sydney Talk Series, 21 August

Three Issues on World Heritage: ‘Recovery and Reconstruction’, ‘Sites of Memory’
and ‘the future of the World Heritage Business of ICOMOS’
presented by Toshiyuki Kono

The World Heritage system has been constantly changing since its entry into force. However currently, on-going changes could give substantial impacts not only on the substance of World Heritage, but also its operational mechanism as well as the future (or the fate) of the Convention. This lecture will focus on three issues in this context. ICOMOS has been conducting a project on “recovery and reconstruction in post-trauma context” of cultural heritage since 2014. A recent activity focuses on creating a matrix for case studies. It has a wider scope than World Heritage and could contribute to discussions on some challenging cases as World Heritage sites. Another, newly emerging challenge is nominations of “Sites of Memory”. For instance, the World Heritage Committee meeting held this year in Manama, Bahrain, decided to postpone its decision on nomination of the WWI related sites submitted by France and Belgium. Why did it happen? Last, but not least, the World Heritage Committee has started to see if the current role model of the three Advisory Bodies (ICOMOS, IUCN and ICCROM) would be the optimal one for the Convention. These on-going discussions may substantially affect ICOMOS and its activities related to World Heritage.

What is the core of these discussions? This lecture will illustrate the background of these three issues and show possible options.

Toshiyuki KONO is a Distinguished Professor, at Kyushu University (Fukuoka, Japan).  He currently (from 2017) serves as the President of the International Council of Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS), an advisory body of UNESCO. He was a vice president of ICOMOS from 2014 through 2017. He is in charge of, among others, World Heritage issues. He has been active in UNESCO as an independent expert as well. For example, he served in 2010 as the Chairperson of the 3rd General Assembly of the State Parties of the UNESCO Convention for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage and was Chairperson of the Legal Committee of the 34th UNESCO General Conference in 2007. His recent publication in the field of international heritage law includes “Authenticity, notions and principles”, Change over Time, Fall 2014, Vol. 4, No.2, pp.436-460. In the field of private international law, he gave special lectures on “Efficiency in Private International Law” at the Hague Academy of International Law in 2013. He was chosen as one of three lecturers who were invited to publish lectures in its Pocket Book series in 2014. Besides his presidency of ICOMOS, he is among others Vice President and Titular Member of the International Academy of Comparative Law; the Chairman of the Committee for Intellectual Property and Private International Law at the International Law Association.

Time & Date: Tuesday 21 August 2018, 5.30pm for 6pm start

Cost: Students $10, Members $15, Non-members $20 payable in cash at GML Heritage

Venue: GML Heritage Level 6, Australia Council Building, 372 Elizabeth Street, Surry Hills, 2010 (corner of Cooper Street – south from Central Station North Concourse exit to Elizabeth Street).

10. [NEW ITEM] International Symposium for the Conservation, Research and Sustainable Development of Pre-Historic Heritage, 10-14 October 2018, Beijing – invitation to participate

International Symposium for the Conservation, Research and Sustainable Development of Pre-Historic Heritage
Peking Man Site at Zhoukoudian, Beijing
10-14 October 2018

Dear Colleagues,

I’m writing to invite related experts and site managers from Australia to participate the International Symposium on the Conservation and Sustainable Development of Prehistoric Heritage, which will take place 11-13 October at the world heritage Peking Man Site in the suburb of Beijing. As the Willandra Lakes Region also falls into the category of prehistoric world heritage related to human evolution (ie. the type of sites of great scientific significance yet facing particular difficulties in attracting general public as touristic destination) it might be interesting for related heritage experts and site managers around the world to come together and exchange views and experience on it.

If related experts or site managers are interested and could come and join the discussion, it will be very much appreciated. If there’s not sufficient time for submitting a full paper before the conference, we will be grateful that the participating expert could give a short presentation sharing with us his or her reflections and insights on the subject. All the cost for participating the conference, including the international flights, food and accommodation etc. will be covered by the organizer.  

Best regards from Beijing, 
Li XIE

Protecting cultural property in conflict: Critical responsibility or unnecessary, impossible, distraction? talk by Prof Peter Stone, 10 August, Canberra

Professor Peter Stone, OBE
Newcastle University, UK

Abstract

Cultural property (not only buildings and archaeological sites but archives, library and museum collections, and art) is always damaged and destroyed during conflict – it is what happens, and there is nothing that can be done about it. However, a proportion of such damage and destruction is frequently avoidable and has been regarded as bad practice by military theorists for over 2,000 years.

Date & time: Friday 10 August, 3.30-5.00pm
Venue: Sir Roland Wilson Bldg, Theatre room 2.02, Australian National University
Further information: email Guillaume Molle

More information about the talk can be found in the CAR Heritage Seminar – P Stone flyer.

AGHS Sydney Branch AGM & talk, 15 August

Australian Garden History Society (AGHS) Sydney Branch AGM & talk
15 August 2018 @ 6:00-8:30 pm

Colleen Morris and Christine Hay will speak at the AGHS AGM on the Berrima, Sutton Forest and Exeter Cultural Landscape Assessment.

Colleen Morris and Christine Hay were awarded the National Trust Heritage Award in the Landscape category at the 2018 Awards ceremony in Sydney on 5 May for their Berrima, Sutton Forest and Exeter Cultural Landscape Assessment.

The Berrima Residents Association commissioned the study in 2017, which was funded equally by Battle for Berima and the Southern Highlands Foundation, to assess the heritage values of the Berrima Sutton Forest areas threatened by the Hume Coal mine plan.

The study found that the Berrima-Sutton Forest area is of such heritage significance that it deserves the utmost protection not only against threats by coal mining but for its own intrinsic worth to NSW and the nation. Cultural landscapes across NSW are under threat from mining, infrastructure and urban development. Communities are faced with radical proposals to transform the landscapes they value.

The protection of cultural landscapes has become a moral issue in the face of powerful economic arguments by powerful corporations.

Venue: Annie Wyatt Room, National Trust Centre, Observatory Hill
Cost: AGHS Members $20, Non-members $30, Students $5; includes light refreshments

Fuelling the Fire: Tour of Joadaja
Presented by the Australian Garden History Society, Southern Highlands Branch
Thursday 25 October 2018

Australian Garden History Society Southern Highlands Branch are pleased to present a symposium to be held in an evocative state-heritage area, Joadja Creek valley, 30kms west of Mittagong, the location of an abandoned nineteenth-century kerosene and shale oil mining town. The site is recognised for its heritage significance:

‘The isolation and beauty of Joadja valley, the comprehensiveness of its physical testimony to a great Australian industry, a vigorous Scottish community and a vanished technology make Joadja an extremely important element in the heritage not just of Wingecarribee Shire but of Australia and the world.’ – State Heritage Register Statement of Significance.

After a Welcome to Country by Gundungurra Elder, Trish Levett, a barbeque lunch will be provided on arrival in the valley. Owner Valero Jiminez and historian, Leonie Knapman, will take you on a tour of the valley including the ruins, the retorts, ‘Carrington Row’ and former orchards. Discussion will continue in the distillery café, led by Professor Emeritus Helen Armstrong AM. The particular focus will be on time and conflicting narratives of ‘gardening’ in the broader landscape. Dr Charles Massey OAM, author of ‘Call of the Reed Warbler’, will bring his deep knowledge of regenerative attitudes to land.

International conference
20-23 February 2019
Berlinische Galerie, Berlin

Architecture of modernity below ground.

The international conference Underground Architecture Revisited will focus on the architectural design of underground stations of the second half of the 20th century in Europe. Transportation architecture very much characterises the appearance of our cities and also functions as a place of identification for its users. Due to modernisation pressures in the large cities, infrastructures of post-war modernity are threatened by disfiguring alterations and loss.

Unsettling Heritage symposium, 27 September, Melbourne – call for papers deadline: 30 August

Unsettling Heritage
Friday 27 September 2018 | A one-day symposium presented by the Emerging Heritage Professionals (Vic)

The word ‘heritage’ often conjures up images of static and unchanging buildings, gardens and cultural landscapes. Yet this belies the fact that the field of heritage is very much in flux, a site of conflict and contestation across communities, generations and socio-economic groups, encompassing both tangible and intangible significance and values.

Join the Emerging Heritage Professionals (Vic) for Unsettling Heritage, a symposium exploring the varied and shifting landscape of heritage in the 21st century.

We are currently seeking papers which critically respond to one or more of the following:

  • Difficult and uncomfortable stories and historic narratives
  • Whose Heritage? Identity, gentrification and multiculturalism
  • Social Justice – Reconciliation, self-determination and decolonising places and approaches
  • Challenges in responding to climate change and sustainable practice
  • Subverting heritage ‘silos’ and embracing interdisciplinary theory, practice and approach

Draft State Planning Policies released for consultation (SA) – deadline 7 September 2018

The draft State Planning Policies, which represent the highest level of policy in our new planning system, have now been released for consultation. The policies will be out for consultation for eight weeks and all interested parties are invited to submit their comments via the SA Planning Portal or YourSAy website by Friday 7 September 2018.

A Summary of the Draft State Planning Policies for South Australia (PDF) is also available.

The draft State Planning Policies set out for the first time a state-wide vision for land use planning in South Australia that aims to improve the liveability, sustainability and prosperity of our state.

Sixteen policies are laid out that address the economic, environmental and social planning priorities for South Australia.

These policies consider changes to how and where South Australians live and work, as well as important issues such as housing supply and diversity; design quality; the adaptive re-use of buildings; climate change; and strategic transport infrastructure.

By bringing South Australia’s planning interests together in a single, over-arching vision, the State Planning Policies will generate greater clarity and efficiency in our planning system and give us the direction we need to respond to modern opportunities and challenges.

Your input will ensure that the State Planning Policies reflect the aspirations of the planning and development community as well as everyday South Australians.

In keeping with the Community Engagement Charter, a detailed communications and engagement plan has been written to support the release of these policies and a number of engagement activities are in progress. You can stay abreast of these through the Planning Ahead newsletter and the list of consultation events on the SA Planning Portal.
