1. [NEW ITEM] End of Australia ICOMOS’ term as Chair organisation of Blue Shield Australia (BSA)

At the beginning of July, Australia ICOMOS steps down as the Chair organisation of Blue Shield Australia (BSA). The Chair now passes to the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA), another of the four Founding Organisations, for a two-year term.

Australia ICOMOS thanks Tanya Park for acting as our Chair of the BSA committee for the past two years, during which she has contributed her expertise and a significant amount of time contributing and co-ordinating the committee and its work. We also thank Catherine Forbes for being the Australia ICOMOS Proxy and for her substantial contributions, and Annabelle Tanuwidjojo for acting in the role of Secretary and Treasurer, also volunteering a great deal of time to take minutes, collate documentation and manage BSA funds. Thirdly, thanks to Robyn Riddett for her considerable contributions to the BSA committee over a number of years.

Tanya and Catherine will continue as the Australia ICOMOS representatives on the BSA committee.

Other Australia ICOMOS members who are interested in the work of disaster preparedness are encouraged to engage with the ANZ (Australia & New Zealand) Joint Cultural Heritage Risk Preparedness Working Group, from which Tanya and Catherine will provide the link to BSA.

President, Australia ICOMOS

2. [NEW ITEM] The Burra Charter turns 40 – Sydney Panel Discussion, 13 July, Uni of Sydney

Australia ICOMOS Burra Charter Panel Discussion
11.00am to 1.00pm, 13 July
University of Sydney

The Burra Charter is the bedrock for heritage practice in Australia. It sets out principles and procedures that have been applied throughout the country and overseas, since it was written in 1979. To acknowledge the Charter’s 40th anniversary, Australia ICOMOS is hosting a series of panel discussions to reflect on the document’s success and evolution, and to consider its capacity to respond to changing cultural assumptions, environmental conditions and professional practices. Questions to be posed as part the discussion may include, how does the Burra Charter work in practice, and how rigorously is it applied? Does it address all of the issues relevant to contemporary heritage and conservation practice? Is there a need for the Charter to respond more directly to intangible heritage? Is there a risk the Charter will be diluted through further reviews?

The second of these panel discussions will take place at the University of Sydney on Saturday 13 July 2019. It will form a discrete session within the conference Distance Looks Back, a joint meeting of the European Architectural History Network (EAHN) and the Society of Architectural Historians Australia and New Zealand (SAHANZ). Conference delegates will be entitled to attend the panel discussion, but it is also possible to register for the panel discussion as a standalone event. Ticket holders for this event will also be entitled to attend other Saturday morning sessions of the conference (see conference sessions here).

For more information and to book for this event, click here.

The discussion will be chaired by Cameron Logan from the School of Architecture, Design and Planning at University of Sydney. If you would like to ask a prepared question on the day, please email your question to Cameron.

3. [NEW ITEM] ‘Three cheers to the old apple tree!’: wassailing, nostalgia and the heritage of apples, lecture, 4 July, Hobart

‘Three cheers to the old apple tree!’: wassailing, nostalgia and the heritage of apples
presented by Alicia Marchant

The ancient practice of wassailing to the apple trees has had a resurgence in recent years in apple-growing regions around the world, including in Tasmania where wassailing is performed as part of the Huon Valley Mid-Winter Fest. First recorded at Fordwich in Kent in England in 1585, apple wassailing or ‘apple howling’ is performed annually on Old Twelfth Night after the Winter Solstice and involves a parading group moving noisily from orchard to orchard, singing a traditional wassailing song with gusto, and banging on pots and pans. The costumes worn are equally as loud, with bright tatters, Morris dress, greenery and foliage, furs and pagan animal masks. The task of this group is to make as much noise as possible to awaken the dormant apple trees to encourage new growth, and to scare away the evil spirits that could lurk and do damage to the precious fruit. Taking the Huon Valley wassail as focal point, this paper will examine the long history of wassailing to the apple trees, and its affective and heritage meanings. Wassailing provides a fascinating case study that raises questions around memory, story-telling and nostalgia, heritage landscapes and soundscapes, folk traditions and archival sources, to ask: what happens when the very British practice of wassailing is transplanted to Tasmania? What sorts of ‘pasts’ are recalled, and what emotional work does the wassail performance do within these contexts? 

Where: Allport Library and Museum of Fine Arts, Ground floor, 91 Murray St (LINC Tasmania)

When: Thursday 4 July, 1.00-2.00pm

Cost: Free, free, free

9. [NEW ITEM] NCA survey on trees within Canberra’s National Triangle – have your say

The National Capital Authority (NCA) has commenced a project to develop a Tree Management Policy. The NCA manages and maintains approximately 18,000 trees across Commonwealth land. Due to a host of existing and emerging challenges, the NCA seeks a policy that has stewardship from the community and provides a strategic approach for future management. The first part of the process is to gather information about what people think about trees within Canberra’s National Triangle and the NCA invites you to complete a brief survey. The survey aims to gather as much input as possible to help the NCA further improve its understanding of how people use the Central National Area, what the community thinks about the treed spaces and what they would like to see more of in the future. The NCA is aware that this is an area of national significance, so it is hoping to reach a national audience with this initial work.

Here is the link to the survey.

UPDATED The National Endangered Skills and Trades Show, 13-14 July, Canberra – bookings open

Rare trades but not as you know it. This event is incorporating both traditional trades and endangered skills from a range of industries (did someone say neon sign tube bending?) to demonstrate the need to reinstate apprenticeships for the future of our workforce. The ACT Government is currently looking at a pilot program to re-energise training in collaboration with artisans in business, and the lobbying being undertaken around this event is crucial. Held at The Fitters Workshop, next to Canberra’s biggest craft market, the demonstration event itself is expecting 15,000 through the doors over the weekend. Major cultural institutions such as the National Film and Sound Archives [who need trainees in analogue sound engineering] will be participating and supporting the advocacy.

Most excitingly, a partnered symposium with the National Museum of Australia will also be held on the Saturday evening with speakers discussing how heritage skills can be used to create bespoke solutions for modern issues and new industries. Lobbying begins and ends in Canberra, lets make this count!

Visit the Endangered Skills and Trades Show website for more information.

Free but you can register here.

UPDATED INFORMATION

The event and symposium has gone live – this is a lobbying event supporting heritage skills and trades, which need to have a renewed education pathway in Australia. We are expected to have ACT government, media and we are trying for federal government representatives. It would be excellent if the room were totally full demonstrating the community interest in heritage and the important part it plays in the community and our economy. 

The speakers are all very interesting and have a special take on their professions and their future my abstract will be on the economic necessity of heritage conservation to ensure unique creative niche industries in a global world. Suggested inclusions are welcome. 

Please help us fill the auditorium and please make this event known to your local member, policy maker, boss and community leader. 

Particularly with an ACT election looming, it about time we had parties heritage policy front and centre.

Harrietville Chinese Mining Village archaeological excavation, October 2019 – bookings open

The Uncovered Past Institute is excited to announce that the second archaeological excavation of the 19th century Harrietville Chinese Mining Village, planned for October 2019, is now open for bookings. Members of the public as well as archaeology students can help fund the project by participating in this excavation.

Highlights of the first excavation in October 2017 can be seen in this video.

Our 2017 team of 10 staff and 36 participants discovered the foundations of at least 19 buildings, and partially excavated two of these. During Season 2 we aim to complete the excavation of these two buildings, and also excavate the communal kitchen where all the meals for the Chinese miners were cooked. The largely undisturbed Village site includes mine workings, water races, building foundations, and gardens: a rare survivor of the heyday of Chinese gold mining in Victoria.

See the Uncovered Past Institute website for participation fees and the program.

Making Conservation, AICCM conference, Melbourne, 13-15 November 2019 – call for papers: closes 1 July

Submissions close: 1 July 2019

At the AICCM National Conference 2019, we invite you to consider how we make our profession. Broadly divided into three themes – making conservation sustainable, innovative and connected – we want to know what excites you, what challenges you, and what you want to discuss further.

What treatments are inspiring you, what new project have you developed, what plans do you have for the future? Where should conservation be heading, both locally and globally, and how are we going to get there? How are we making conservation now and how can the way we make conservation shape the future?

Join us at the Pavilion at the Arts Centre, Melbourne, 13–15 November 2019 and continue the conversation. The three day conference will include two and a half days of presentations, an afternoon of tours, a panel discussion on conservation education, welcome drinks and an evening soiree.

Each day of the conference will centre around one of the three themes:

Making Conservation Connected

• How are we/should we make conservation inclusive, collaborative, visible, accessible and connected across communities?

Making Conservation Sustainable

• How can the profession grow and develop?
• What do we need from conservation education and what are the challenges or opportunities we are working with?
• How can conservation respond to climate change and how will this affect our work?

Making Conservation Innovation

• What treatments, projects, developments or ideas are exciting and inspiring you, or challenging you to do things differently?
• How can conservation shape the future?

The organising committee welcomes abstracts of 250 words on these three distinct but connected topics. Suggested formats include:

• Papers (20 mins)
• Lightning talks (5 mins)
• Panel discussions (45 mins – 1 hr)
• Other facilitated discussion, debate, critique, networking or interactive sessions
• Posters
• Short video presentations
• Tours (to be facilitated through the tour afternoon)

If we have not listed your preferred session format here, contact us to discuss your idea. Abstracts/queries can be emailed to Albertine Hamilton.

ICADS 15th World Congress on Art Deco, Buenos Aires, 5-15 November 2019 – call for papers: closes 1 July

Congress Theme

The Congress theme is Art Deco Melting Pots in relation with the Congress program that will show on site the Art Deco Rioplatense, a trend that borrowed ideas, images, and materials from different parts of the world to shape modern eclectic design, architecture and town planning.

The Art Deco era embodied the climax of eclecticism in a context of fast communications, combination of tradition and innovation, integration between industrialization and craftsmanship, intersection of arts and design, intellectual and artistic desacralization of images and secular traditions in composition and ornamentation.

The three sessions of lectures will present Art Deco Rioplatense in all its manifestations: architecture and decoration, art and design, urbanism and landscaping by local scholars. The program will include other presentations concentrated on the transfers, assimilations, and mixes in the emergence of characteristic regional art deco trends.

For more information about the event and the call for papers, visit the congress website and see the call for papers document.

The call for papers closes 1 July 2019.
