 8/12 Heritage #Aboriginal: Aboriginal People/Aboriginal Places

Aboriginal Heritage management in NSW is changing. Communities are becoming more involved. Innovative approaches are encouraging better connections between people and places. New statues, guidelines, policies and codes of conduct mean how we understand, assess and interpret Aboriginal heritage is dynamic.

This will be a fast-paced informative evening where speakers from the Aboriginal heritage industry and Aboriginal community will share their experiences through a series of pictorial vignettes – 8 minutes/12 slides – which highlight the diversity of engagement with Aboriginal Heritage.

Speakers include members of the Aboriginal community, archaeologists and professional colleagues:

  • – Michael Bennet, Native Title Services Corp on Aboriginal Place Trackers
  • – Glenda Chalker, Tharawal elder and member of NSW Parks Service Advisory Council on the Aboriginal heritage reform process
  • – Cheryl Lappin, Senior Strategic Planner, Shellharbour City on the Shellharbour Tool Kit
