In 2019, the Burra Charter turns 40!

Does the Burra Charter address all of the issues relevant to contemporary heritage practice?

The first of the discussion panels took place at the University of Melbourne on 27 June 2019. The format, based on the ABC’s ‘Q and A’ show, saw a panel of four speakers respond to questions from the audience, with the discussion chaired by a moderator.

The audio from this event has been recorded (total time 1 hr 15 mins) and is now available to listen to from here and also via the Australia ICOMOS Facebook page.

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.

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.

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.
