What are the threads that connect places with their past?
How does an understanding of history enhance our response to heritage?
What common knowledge and skills support a successful local museum and an Indigenous cultural tourism business?
The WA State Heritage & History Conference aims to explore these and many more connections, intersections and common causes over two days on 11 and 12 May 2017, at the iconic Perth Concert Hall.
The conference will bring together a broad range of presentations, creating partnerships and links within and across groups in the heritage sector.
Parallel streams will focus on different subject areas including heritage conservation and development, historical research, cultural and heritage tourism, collections management, interpretation and related disciplines and interests.
Identifying and forging connections will strengthen and build the capacity of organisations, enabling them to better meet future challenges and demands.
