1. [NEW ITEM] Deakin University Cultural Heritage Seminar, Melbourne, Wednesday 31 July

Deakin University’s next Cultural Heritage Seminar will be a presentation by Dr Lauren Pikó (University of Melbourne), on “Ideal landscapes, planning and heritage in postwar British culture”.

Abstract

While Britain’s postwar planned landscapes, including modernist urban redevelopments and new towns, have received increasing attention from historians and heritage professions over recent decades, in political rhetoric and popular culture these landscapes have consistently been viewed as unable to accumulate and retain meaning, and therefore as dystopian, unnatural, and even foreign. This is particularly the case for the new town of Milton Keynes, the experimental new town designated in 1967; even as residents celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2017, the town has been consistently represented as sterile, dystopian, and even as a threat to ideals of national heritage and tradition itself. This presentation draws on the recent book Milton Keynes in British Culture: Imagining England, along with wider case studies, to examine the cultural histories of attitudes to ideal landscapes in Britain, and their wider political functions in debates around tradition, national identity, and the contested legacy of the reconstructionist state. 

Biography

Dr Lauren Pikó was a 2019 Gilbert Early Career Postdoctoral Fellow in the School of Historical and Philosophical Studies at the University of Melbourne. Her research focuses on cultural and intellectual histories of ideal landscape forms in Britain and Australia. Her book Milton Keynes in British Culture: Imagining England was published by Routledge in 2019.

8. [NEW ITEM] ICOMOS releases “Future of Our Pasts” report to increase engagement of cultural heritage in climate action

Cultural heritage offers immense and virtually untapped potential to drive climate action and support ethical and equitable transitions by communities towards low-carbon, climate-resilient development pathways.  Realising that potential, however, requires both better recognition of the cultural dimensions of climate change and adjusting the aims and methodologies of heritage practice. 

Achieving the Paris Agreement’s ambition of limiting global warming to 1.5ºC above pre-industrial levels would require ‘rapid and far-reaching’ transitions in land, energy, industry, buildings, transport, and cities, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has said. Better addressing the ways in which cultural heritage is both impacted by climate change and a source of resilience for communities would increase the ambition for – and effectiveness of – transformative change, the ICOMOS report released Wednesday concluded.

The ‘Future of Our Pasts: Engaging Cultural Heritage in Climate Action’ report was released by ICOMOS on Wednesday 3 July 2019 in Baku, Republic of Azerbaijan at an event held during the 43rd session of the World Heritage Committee. 

Twenty-eight ICOMOS members representing 19 countries served as lead and contributing authors for the report. Eleven ICOMOS international scientific committees and 21 ICOMOS national committees provided feedback. In addition, almost 50 invited experts provided peer review.

The ‘Future of Our Pasts’ report was prepared under the scientific leadership of ICOMOS’s Climate Change and Heritage Working Group. The ICOMOS Triennial General Assembly held in 2017 in New Delhi, India adopted Resolution 19GA 2017/30 entitled ‘Mobilizing ICOMOS and the Cultural Heritage Community To Help Meet the Challenge of Climate’. The Climate Change and Cultural Heritage Working Group was formed in order to further the resolution’s ambitious aims.

The report highlights a number of ways in which the core considerations of cultural heritage intersect with the ambitions of the Paris Agreement, including heightening ambition to address climate change, mitigating greenhouse gases, enhancing adaptive capacity, and planning for loss and damage.

At the same time, climate change is already impacting communities and heritage globally, and these trends are rapidly worsening. The report provides a framework for systematically cataloguing the impacts of climate change drivers on six main categories of cultural heritage, in order to aid in evaluating and managing both climate risks to cultural heritage and the positive role it can play as a source of resilience.

Given the nature and scale of climate impacts, the report concludes that how we conceive of heritage and how we manage it will require updating. New, multi-disciplinary approaches will be required in areas such as heritage documentation, disaster risk reduction, vulnerability assessment, conservation, education and training as well as in the ways heritage sites are presented to visitors.

‘The climate is changing and so must heritage. It would be foolish to imagine the practice of heritage remaining static while the world goes through the rapid and far-reaching transitions discussed in the IPCC’s recent Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5°C,’ said Professor Toshiyuku Kono, President of ICOMOS.

ICOMOS initially plans to use the report to organise its inputs into a proposed update of the “UNESCO World Heritage Committee’s 2007 Policy Document on the Impacts of Climate Change on World Heritage sites”, to develop a roadmap for heritage organisations to engage on climate change issues, and to organise outreach to the scientific community on research gaps and opportunities.

Beyond these immediate programmatic uses, ICOMOS hopes the report will feed the new interdisciplinary #ClimateHeritage movement that has begun to blossom including:

•             Supporting shifts in heritage approaches and methodologies necessitated by Climate Change

•             Providing a benchmark against which heritage actors may measure their engagement with climate change

•             For climate activists and policy-makers, increasing their understanding of and engagement with cultural heritage

•             Stimulating attention to existing research gaps and opportunities for collaboration with scientists and scholars on the intersections of climate change and cultural heritage

The full report is available here.

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.
