Australia ICOMOS Burra Charter Series

The Burra Charter: the Australia ICOMOS Charter for Places of Cultural Significance, 2013 and the associated series of Practice Notes provide a best practice standard for managing cultural heritage places in Australia.

First adopted in 1979, the Burra Charter (BC) is periodically updated to reflect developing understanding of the theory and practice of cultural heritage management. The current version of the Burra Charter was adopted in 2013. During the 40th Anniversary of the Burra Charter in 2019, a series of public events were held and a need for improved education and training in using the Charter was apparent.

The Burra Charter video series has been created to facilitate an appreciation of heritage principles and processes among non-practitioners, and professionals for whom heritage is peripheral to core business. 

These videos are intended to be clear, practical and engaging to illustrate how the BC should be utilised.

This new program will be part of an ongoing series by Australia ICOMOS. Each episode will focus on a different aspect of the Burra Charter and the Practice Notes.
