1. [NEW ITEM] The Australia ICOMOS / University of Canberra Heritage Studies PhD Scholarship – submit EOI by 28 June

Applications are now invited for an exciting co-funded PhD opportunity offered through a partnership between Australia ICOMOS and the University of Canberra.

The 3-year stipend scholarship will be offered to an exceptional candidate who will pursue a doctoral project that responds to the Australia ICOMOS strategic agenda, expands thinking around heritage in Australia and produces a legacy of research data and analysis that has the potential to influence practice, policy and conceptual/theoretical innovation. Applicants are asked to propose a research project in response to the Research Provocation document that has been prepared in consultation with Australia ICOMOS members and academics, and is available upon request. The PhD can be pursued via a range of approaches: including traditional thesis, by publication, or through a practice based approach to produce research artefact(s) and exegesis.

Candidates must meet all requirements to be accepted into the University of Canberra PhD program, should be available to study full-time and take up the scholarship in Semester 2 this year.

The supervisory panel for the project will be led by Professor Tracy Ireland and include relevant experts from academia and Australia ICOMOS, negotiated with the successful candidate to best support their project.

The candidate would be based in the Centre for Creative and Cultural Research, Faculty of Arts and Design, at the University of Canberra (UC). UC developed Australia’s first courses in heritage and conservation commencing in 1978 and today hosts a diverse array of programs and funded research projects specialising in multi and interdisciplinary research crossing boundaries of critical heritage, science and technology, creative arts, digital humanities, design and sustainability. Current and recent projects include: ARC Linkage Heritage of the Air, ARC Linkage Laser Ablation for Conservation and Restoration of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, The Sustainable Shine Dome, Digital Modelling for Climate Resilience for the Old Great North Road, Ginninderry Living Lab Research Framework, Haig Park Experiments-Urban Activations. The Centre for Creative and Cultural Research hosts a cohort of over 40 PhD scholars working in a range of disciplines, providing research support, access to funding for conferences and fieldwork, a seminar series and a rich calendar of training workshops, boot camps, and weekly ‘shut up and write’.

Interested applicants should contact Tracy Ireland by email to register interest and request the Research Provocation document. Expressions of Interest then need to be received by 28 June 2020, including a CV and a 2-page statement that provides an overview of the intended focus of your research in response to the Research Provocation. Explain how your expertise will assist in completing a PhD, what outputs and outcomes you would envisage from this work, and how it would contribute to furthering Australia ICOMOS’ strategic agenda. More detail on the EOI requirements is provided in the Research Provocation document, available upon request.

ACT Region Heritage Symposium 2021: Heritage at Times of Crisis: Saving, Sustaining, Sharing
7 August 2021 | ANU Acton Campus

In a Land of Fires, Droughts and Flooding Rains, and now Climate Change, and a health pandemic,
what role at such times has a community’s heritage in maintaining its sense of place, of belonging, and continuity?

In this year’s Symposium, we will explore this question with a series of papers addressing examples of problems and solutions: case studies that assist us in dealing with such crises and change, including being locked down or out during a pandemic. Does our heritage assist us? We look to gain a wider understanding of how heritage can support us at such difficult times.

Call for papers

You are invited to offer a paper, or short 5-minute vignette, with case studies of problems and solutions for this topic, sent by 28 June to Liz McMillan, National Trust (ACT) by email.

4. [NEW ITEM] Workshop: Cultural and Natural Heritage and Climate Challenges, 1-2 July, Online – register by 25 June

Cultural and Natural Heritage is threatened by numerous climate change impacts, such as heat waves, sea level rise, increased risk of storm surges and flooding. It is therefore crucial to evaluate the vulnerability of Cultural and Natural Heritage and how it may be impacted by climate change.

On 1-2 July 2021, the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) will host a virtual workshop with key sectoral stakeholders to discuss climate challenges for Cultural and Natural Heritage, data needs and potential solutions offered by C3S.

During two half days, we will focus on:

  • Understanding the climate change-related challenges of the Cultural and Natural Heritage community
  • Identifying specific needs for climate data, tools and services in order to meet these challenges

We will take this opportunity to present the C3S service offering, demonstrate where it fits in the climate service value chain, and determine ways in which it could support the Cultural and Natural Heritage community.

We are pleased to invite you on behalf of the C3S to register here before Friday 25 June at 18:00 CEST. After your registration, we will contact you to provide detailed information on the agenda and on how to connect to the event.

Together with our invitation, we would like also to share with you a questionnaire where we aim to collect specific needs and requirements focused on the Cultural and Natural Heritage stakeholders.

Join us for Webinar 1 in the Caring For Country Webinar Series organized by the Caring For Country Committee, a Working Group of Australia ICOMOS with members from Australia ICOMOS, ICOMOS New Zealand, ICOMOS Pasifika and Non-ICOMOS members from Oceania.

‘Oceania Wisdom for a Climate Chance’ brings together a group of distinguished Oceania Elders who will present their insights on the impacts of climate change on their respective domains of land and water and the Indigenous responses to these.

Co-ordinated by Emelda Davis, Dr Anne Poelina and Dr Marie Geissler, it highlights the ‘climate chance’ that now exists, as a window of opportunity for governments and outside agencies seeking sustainable and long-term solutions from the impacts of climate change, to work alongside First Nations people. Through this process they will be informed of the ancient wisdom traditions and intimate knowledge of lands and their interconnected biospheres and seasons that First Nations peoples hold. This knowledge draws on thousands of years of successful natural resources management of country by First Nations peoples, where practices for land stewardship are highly individualized and responsive to the different circumstances of each habitat. Elders to speak include Aunty Shireen Malamoo, Emelda Davis, Dr Anne Poelina, Pastor Ray Minniecon and Hon Samson Vivil Fare.

Membership of the Australia ICOMOS Indigenous Heritage Reference Group – call for Expressions of Interest: deadline COB 21 June 2021

The membership of the Australia ICOMOS Indigenous Heritage Reference Group (IHRG) was last refreshed in late 2017. In accordance with the Australia ICOMOS policy for all groups for a number of years, it is now time to refresh the membership.

The purpose of the IHRG is to advise Australia ICOMOS on matters pertaining to Indigenous heritage conservation principles, policies and practice. (It should be noted that while Australia ICOMOS recognises that Indigenous cultural heritage encompasses a broad range of values including, but not limited to, sites and places of historical or contemporary importance and the land itself, the consideration of Indigenous heritage by Australia ICOMOS does not include general land management and conservation, which is outside the focus of Australia ICOMOS). The IHRG provides advice as needed to the President and the Executive Committee on any issues that arise in relation to the conservation of Indigenous cultural heritage. Issues may relate to specific sites as in the case of Indigenous issues in World Heritage Monitoring Missions, or ‘framework’ issues as in the case of preparing submissions on legislation reform. This reference group, initially a Working Group, has existed since 1998. The Group does not hold regular meetings, but acts as issues arise.

Members of the IHRG will be selected based on demonstrated expertise and experience in the area of Australian Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander cultural heritage conservation. Members must have a high level of expertise in Australian Indigenous heritage management. In selecting members, regard will also be given to ensuring the IHRG has broad geographic representation across Australia and that the membership represents a broad range of expertise in the area of Indigenous heritage conservation. Membership is open to Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australia ICOMOS members. Indigenous members are strongly encouraged to apply. Current IHRG members are able to nominate to renew their membership. Young and/or Emerging Professional members with a specialist skill or interest in Australian Indigenous heritage management, but who don’t have sufficient expertise to become a member, may apply to be an Adjunct member (this is initially a one year appointment, which is reviewed at the end of the year).

More information can be found on the Indigenous Heritage Reference Group webpage and in the EOI document (link below). Please note that all individuals who express an interest in any Australia ICOMOS Working or Reference Group agree to be bound by the documents that can be found here.

Members of Australia ICOMOS are invited to express an interest in becoming a member of this Reference Group by sending a completed IHRG_EOI form_May 2021 to the Australia ICOMOS Secretariat by email by COB 21 June 2021.

For further information please contact the current convenor, Anne McConnell by email.




INFORMATION ADDED: 2011 UNESCO Recommendation on the Historic Urban Landscape, 10th Anniversary Celebration, 23-24 June

The HUL Anniversary Event (23-24 June) not only marks the start of the 2021 celebration but serves as a catalyst for greater adoptions of the HUL approach. At the same time, the event serves as a platform to share lessons learned from COVID-19 and to resume discussions on the future of urban management. Topics such as public space, renovations, tourism, infrastructure and livelihoods will be explored. The Recommendation will provide an overall framework, while local needs and resources determine the implementation form.

On 23 June, the HUL Call for Action will be launched. The Call breaks the Recommendation down into concrete “Three Actions” (see “Call for Action”), in order to promote the HUL implementation for cities. The main participants will be Mayors, partners and high-level representatives from World Heritage and non-World Heritage cities, as they have the capacity to champion and mainstream the approach in their urban planning. Following the launch, panel discussions will explore the role of the Recommendation within the post-COVID-19 urban setting. Thematic lenses such as crisis response and recovery and local-actor empowerment will closely reflect the Call.

On 24 June, the session will focus on the application of the HUL approach to the World Heritage cities. Challenges triggered by the pandemic such as the drop in tourism and restricted urban-based activities will be discussed, with HUL serving as a potential mitigation framework. The invitees will consist of site managers, national focal points, city planning departments and experts, devising in-depth, practical conversations. Case studies collected, analysed and developed during preparatory technical meetings will also be presented.

In the context of this event, the World Heritage Centre is calling for case studies on urban heritage management practices. Topics include transportation and infrastructure, public space, renovations, tourism, traditional livelihoods and circular/green economies, revolving around the idea of recovery and “building back better” with heritage cities as thriving, sustainable and resilient urban centres strongly connected to their communities. The case studies will be presented in the preparatory technical meetings, which will take place on 16 and 21 June.

Presentation: The life and times of Moir and Sutherland, 2 July, Sydney

The life and times of Moir and Sutherland
A presentation by Peter Freeman OAM

Practicing both as architect and historian, Peter Freeman has dedicated more than four decades to the conservation, documentation and celebration of Australia’s architectural heritage.

He is the author of many books on Australia’s heritage and vernacular buildings, and has worked on conservation projects across the country. In 2019, Peter was awarded a medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) for his service to architecture.

In this presentation, Peter will focus on the life and times of Malcolm Moir and Heather Sutherland – Canberra’s 20th-century ‘architectural power couple’; and the work of the two modernists Neville Ward and Ian Slater, who joined the practice following the tragic death of Heather Sutherland in 1951.

We’ll discover how they designed a singularly coherent collection of residential and commercial buildings, spread throughout the fledgling city.

This will be a rare opportunity to hear from one of Australia’s foremost heritage architects and historians.

Peter will be signing copies of his new book Thoroughly Modern: The Life + Times of Moir + Sutherland Architects.

Date: Friday 2 July 2021
Time: Light refreshments at 6.30pm for a 7.00pm start
Place: The Powerhouse Museum, Ultimo
