ACT Region Heritage Symposium 2019

The Spaces In Between: Connecting Canberra’s Urban Landscape

What are the complex challenges facing our city today?
How can a deep, rich and shared understanding of place help drive sustainable outcomes?
How can we as a community help to shape the environment we live in?

In addressing these questions, we will be informed by UNESCO’s Historic Urban Landscape approach. Susan Fayad, Coordinator World Heritage, Partnership and Regional Projects, City of Ballarat, will be with us, sharing the experience of HUL’s application in Ballarat as the first worldwide pilot application of this process, and the response of the local community. The Symposium will bring together a curated series of provocative talks from keynote speakers, a variety of stories about people’s special places, and thought-provoking workshop sessions that address:

Canberra, a Historic Urban Landscape:
Sharing stories of space to sustain our sense of place within Canberra’s urban landscape.

ACT Heritage Workshop 2019

Historic Urban Landscape Approach in Canberra
Friday 23 August 2019 2:00 – 5:00 pm

What are the complex challenges facing our cities today?
How can a deep, rich and shared understanding of place help drive sustainable outcomes?
How can we as a community help to shape the environment we live in?
This workshop will be led by Susan Fayad, Coordinator World Heritage, Partnership and Regional Projects, City of Ballarat who lead the implementation of UNESCO’s Historic Urban Landscape (HUL) approach in Ballarat.
The HUL approach is a holistic framework designed to help cities manage change while retaining what is distinct and valued about their identity, culture and environment.
The HUL approach moves beyond the simple preservation of the physical environment to a broader focus which takes into account the existing built environment, intangible heritage, cultural diversity, socio-economic and environmental factors, and local community values and provides a solution to overcoming limitations with planning and heritage regulatory frameworks.
This workshop will introduce participants to the HUL approach and how it be used to manage urban change. The workshop is relevant to those working within local, state, territory and Commonwealth government heritage and planning authorities.

Venue: Museum of Australian Democracy, Old Parliament House, 18 King George Tce, Parkes
Cost: $15
