Heritage Management and Planning Seminar 2015
Heritage Means Business
16-17 April 2015
Midland Town Hall
The Heritage Council's annual Heritage Management & Planning Seminar was a key opportunity for those working in, or with, the heritage industry, to keep up to date with current issues and ideas. With a theme of 'Heritage Means Business', the 2015 seminar proved to be a varied and stimulating sharing of ideas.
Over two days, we heard speakers from business and industry provide updates on current activities, new developments and future projects. These insightful presentations explored ways in which heritage can be a basis, stimulus and catalyst for commercial activity, and demonstrated the potential for heritage conservation through innovative adaptation and sound management. View the full program.
Hosted by the City of Swan, the main activities were set in the historic Midland Town Hall, with an opportunity to explore heritage sites within the surrounding area. An informal dinner at Little Guildford provided excellent networking opportunities.
The seminar was invaluable to local government staff, heritage practitioners or those in related roles in government agencies or private industry. For the first time, owners of heritage places joined us, together with community members with an interest in history and heritage.
