ACT Region Heritage Symposium 2022 – Heritage and Healing: How Heritage Helps

Heritage and Healing:
How Heritage Helps

Health and wellbeing have come to the fore in society owing to the challenges of recent years where dramatic changes have been imposed on our normal way of life. In response to lockdowns and natural disasters, there is a desire for bringing people together to promote the health and healing of our communities.

In this year’s Symposium, a series of papers will explore the following questions:

  • What role could heritage have in enhancing our wellbeing and enriching our lives?
  • How have our heritage and its intangible values given us a sense of place, of a continuity from the past to present?
  • How can cultural engagement contribute to healing?

The Symposium will be held on
