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 is 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 promises to be a varied and stimulating sharing of ideas.
Over two days, hear speakers from business and industry provide updates on current activities, new developments and future projects. These insightful presentations will explore ways in which heritage can be a basis, stimulus and catalyst for commercial activity, as well as demonstrate the potential for heritage conservation through innovative adaptation and sound management. View the full program.
The 2015 seminar will be opened by the Minister for Heritage on Thursday 16 April. For those wishing to refresh and update their background knowledge and understanding of heritage concepts and legislation, an optional half-day workshop is offered on Wednesday 15 April.
Hosted by the City of Swan, the main activities are set in the historic Midland Town Hall, with an opportunity to explore heritage sites within the surrounding area. An informal dinner, included in the registration fee, will provide excellent networking opportunities.
This seminar will be invaluable to local government staff, heritage practitioners or those in related roles in government agencies or private industry. Owners of heritage places and community members with an interest in history and heritage are welcome to attend.
The registration fee of $385 (incl gst) includes morning and afternoon teas, lunch on Thursday and Friday and the informal dinner. Registrations are now open.
