HERITAGE ON THE EDGE: CONTINUITY WITH CHANGE IN CANBERRA?
SATURDAY 18 AUGUST 2018
call for papers deadline: 6 July 2018
Convened by Heritage Partners:
Australia ICOMOS, Canberra Archaeological Society,
Canberra & District Historical Society and National Trust of Australia (ACT)
Heritage on the Edge: Continuity with Change in Canberra? will focus on Canberra’s Modern (‘Modernist’) Architecture, a style widely used in Canberra for public buildings and private housing in the mid-20th Century, and of international standing. Its minimalist form is not a contemporary style today as Canberra rapidly changes with a focus on innovation and development, and high-rise living. Change is a constant, but how are we applying it in Canberra so heritage is identified and protected to ensure a connection with our past, and a continuity of our sense of place?
Call for Papers: We are seeking papers from a diverse range of viewpoints: architects, heritage practitioners, developers, planners, archaeologists, community advocates. We welcome papers from students and emerging professionals on heritage and change more generally.
To propose a paper, please submit an abstract to the National Trust (ACT) care of Liz McMillan by email by 6 July 2018.
Cost: $75 full registration; $55 member host organisation; $35 (concessions, full-time students, speakers)
