Australia ICOMOS invites you to a weekend of symposia and a field trip

TAS Symposia & Field Trip, 10-12 November 2018

Australia ICOMOS is holding two back-to-back Symposia in Hobart over 10-12 November 2018. The Cultural Landscape Diversity & the Implications for Management Symposium (10-11 November) and the Under the Microscope – Exploring Science Heritage Symposium (11-12 November) are timely fora to review and discuss the identification and management of these two aspects of cultural heritage – one an established, but rapidly developing area, and the other relatively invisible and little known.

  • Cultural Landscape Diversity & the Implications for Management Symposium – this symposium is aimed at exploring the diversity of cultural landscapes and what this diversity means for the identification, categorisation, assessment and management of cultural landscapes. It is intended as an opportunity to review where Australia is at in relation to the conservation of cultural landscapes, and to explore how best practice in this area can be maintained into the future.
  • Under the Microscope – Exploring Science Heritage Symposium – this symposium will shine light on the physical heritage of Australia’s long history of science and innovation and the identification and conservation of this ‘science heritage’. It is designed to be a multidisciplinary dialogue that explores the heritage of Australian 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 symposia are open to all people with an interest in cultural landscapes and/or science heritage. Each symposium will be a combination of presented papers with opportunities for discussion of the issues raised and the implications and needs for heritage conservation. A joint symposia field excursion on Sunday 11 November will present symposia participants with the opportunity to visit some outstanding and diverse Tasmanian cultural landscapes and science heritage sites within southeastern Tasmania.

The symposia registration fees are:

  • Cultural Landscapes Symposium – $85 per person
  • Science Heritage Symposium – $85 per person
  • Joint Symposia Field Excursion**^^ – $95 per person
