The Australia ICOMOS Executive Committee, at its February 2018 meeting, approved the establishment of the ICOMOS-TICCIH NSC on Industrial Heritage. TICCIH Australia members have also showed support for the formation of this committee. This NSC will consist of members of both ICOMOS and TICCIH with the following aim:
To be a voice for industrial heritage arguing for the preservation, conservation, investigation, documentation, research and interpretation of our industrial heritage!
During establishment of the NSC, there is an interim charter and interim committee, with Dr Iain Stuart as chair. The interim committee has the role of establishing the committee within the next 6 months.
Membership of the NSC has the following categories of membership:
• Expert member (member of either ICOMOS or TICCH or related professional institution with three years or more relevant experience in the field of industrial heritage conservation).
• Member (anyone who shares our aims e.g the Burra Charter and the ICOMOS TICCH “Dublin Principles”, and is happy to implement them).
We are now calling for prospective members to apply to join the NSC. We especially encourage applications from a wide range of disciplinary backgrounds and from emerging professionals.
To make an application please email a brief note outlining your experience and interest and indicating whether you are a member of ICOMOS or TICCIH. Please include a brief resume that supports the application.
Application for this round close on the 23 July 2018.
The International Committee for the Conservation of the Industrial Heritage, better known by the more manageable TICCIH (pronounced “ticky”), is the world organization for industrial heritage. Its goals are to promote international cooperation in preserving, conserving, investigating, documenting, researching, interpreting, and advancing education of the industrial heritage.
