ACT Region Heritage Symposium 2021

Call for Papers

Heritage at Times of Crisis: Saving, Sustaining, Sharing

In a Land of Fires, Droughts and Flooding Rains, and now Climate Change, and a health pandemic, what role at such times has a community’s heritage in maintaining its sense of place, of belonging, and continuity?

In this year’s Symposium, we will explore this question with a series of papers addressing examples of problems and solutions: case studies that assist us in dealing with such crises and change, including being locked down or out during a pandemic. Does our heritage assist us? We look to gain a wider understanding of how heritage can support us at such difficult times.

You are invited to offer a paper, or short 5-minute vignette, with case studies of problems and solutions for this topic, sent by 28 June to Liz McMillan, National Trust (ACT),
