Cultural Heritage Places Policy: Visions, Policies and Implementation Strategies. Australia ICOMOS, July 1998, 16pp & photographs

  • This Policy is about the action that is needed by communities, governments, owners and individuals to keep and conserve their heritage places. It is the Australia ICOMOS philosophical position on key aspects of cultural heritage conservation, including: legislation, standards and ethics, conservation, registers and records, community and international participation. The Policy is intended for integration with the cultural and environmental management policies of governments, non-government organisations, business and community groups with responsibilities for heritage places.

Assessing Social Values: Communities and Experts. A workshop held by Australia ICOMOS. Australian Heritage Commission, September 1996, 40pp

  • This publication is the proceedings of a seminar organised by Australia ICOMOS in December 1994 in Sydney to review current work integrating social value into heritage practice. The seminar demonstrated that the attribution of meaning to heritage places by different sections of the community will require sometimes dramatic, sometimes subtle shifts of focus and method, to ensure that social / community values are factored into heritage conservation practice.
