The Trust Talks – Behind Closed Doors: The heritage of hidden places and exclusive spaces, Brisbane, 5 July

THE TRUST TALKS – Behind Closed Doors: The heritage of hidden places and exclusive spaces

Opening the doors for Innovation, Collaboration and Celebration of our heritage.


Join us for the 4th Talk in our Trust Talks series as we explore the heritage of our unseen places.

We often say that accessible heritage is loved heritage, but what about the wealth of heritage places that are generally unseen by the public? What is the value of these places to the community, how are they managed and more importantly…what do they look like inside?


Dr Andrew Sneddon Activating our hidden heritage.

It is often said of heritage places that ‘you got to use it or lose it’ but that is rarely a simple matter. Andrew will consider the challenges associated with ‘activating’ our hidden gems and hard-to-get-to heritage places.

Dr Andrew Sneddon is Associate Director of Extent Heritage and Manager of its Brisbane office. His knowledge of heritage practice includes both Indigenous and non-Indigenous heritage, which has seen him work on native title matters before the Federal Court of Australia, and in Aboriginal place management, built heritage management, and international archaeology. Andrew also has specialist knowledge in the field of heritage law.

Jane Alexander Inside the Official Establishments: The Hidden Heritage of the Prime Ministers’ Residences.
