TAS 2018 Symposia

Over 9-12 November 2018, Australia ICOMOS will be holding 2 one-day heritage symposia in conjunction with the Australia ICOMOS 2018 AGM. All events will all be held in Hobart.

One symposium is on the subject of cultural landscapes. It will explore the diversity of cultural landscapes, and what this diversity means for the identification, categorisation, assessment and management of cultural landscapes.

The other symposium will explore the relatively unseen, little explored and largely uncelebrated heritage of 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 CALL FOR SYMPOSIA PAPERS is now open – click on the following links for more information

The symposia are open to all people with an interest in the topics. Each symposium will be a combination of presented papers that will be followed by an opportunity for discussion of the issues raised and the implications and needs for heritage conservation.

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.

The program is as follows:

  • Fri 9 November – Australia ICOMOS AGM (early evening), followed by dinner
  • Sat 10 November – Cultural Landscape Diversity & Its Implications; 1 day symposium – hosted by the Australia ICOMOS NSC Cultural Landscapes & Cultural Routes (and followed by dinner)
  • Sun 11 November – a full day field trip in the south of Tasmania for participants of one or both symposia
  • Mon 12 November – Under the Microscope – Exploring Science Heritage; 1 day symposium

Registrations will be opening soon!
