When: Tuesday 8 October 2019, 5:30 - 7:30 pm,

Where: Hadleys Orient Hotel, 34 Murray Street, Hobart.

The Burra Charter, the bedrock for heritage practice in Australia, turns 40 this year! The Burra Charter sets out principles and procedures that have been applied throughout Australia since it was written in 1979.

In Tasmania, Australia ICOMOS is celebrating this milestone with a reception at the historic Hadleys Orient Hotel in Hobart on Tuesday 8th October 2019, from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. If you have an interest in heritage conservation please come and be part of this cultural heritage celebration.

The reception will also feature a small panel of heritage practitioners who are expert in different areas of cultural heritage who will share their reflections and thoughts on their experience working with the Burra Charter, its usefulness, and how they think the Burra Charter might usefully evolve in the future. This will be followed by audience questions and comment. Professor Kate Darian-Smith, a cultural historian and Executive Dean and Pro Vice-Chancellor College of Arts, Law & Education at the University of Tasmania will be MC for the event.

Cost: $15, refreshments provided.
