*   Friday 17 October, 9.00am-4.00pm (followed by the Australia ICOMOS AGM at 4.30pm)

*   Deakin University City Campus 550 Bourke Street, Melbourne

This ‘Activism’ symposium asks whether we need to return to an age of activism to retain and build on what achieved in cultural heritage conservation since the 1970s.

Featuring presentations from successful activists in social media, local government, planning community action, the natural environment and the arts, it will offer us a chance to reflect and look forward.
