This symposium will explore the concept of ‘everyday heritage’ and how professionals, academics and communities engage with the values of everyday lived experience. The symposium will provide opportunities to engage with current heritage thinking and discuss a range of methods and tools that can make ordinary people from the past visible and create value around everyday experiences and places in the present.

This event is a part of the Australian Research Council funded Everyday Heritage Linkage project which is a collaboration between the universities of Canberra, Tasmania, Western Australia, and New South Wales and Partner Organisation GML Heritage.

An aim of the project is to develop methods and approaches that bridge academic, community and industry practice, with a particular focus on digital tools that can help connect archives, people and place.

Speakers will include:

Professor Tracy Ireland, Leader of the Everyday Heritage ARC Linkage Project
Sharon Veale, CEO GML Heritage
Professor Jane Lydon, Wesfarmers Chair in Australian History, UWA
Dr Kate Bagnall, Coordinator of the Family History Program, UTAS
Dr Tim Sherratt, Associate Professor of Digital Heritage, UC
Dr Cristina Garduño Freeman, Senior Lecturer in Architectural History and Theory, UNSW
Dr Steve Brown, ARC Senior Research Fellow, UC

In addition, the symposium will include special guest interlopers – soon to be announced!

This free event is supported by the Australian Research Council, Centre for Creative & Cultural Research at the University of Canberra, and GML Heritage.
