On behalf of Australia ICOMOS, I would like to invite you to join us at the Australia ICOMOS 2009 (Un)Loved Modern Conference to be held at the Sydney Masonic Centre, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia from 7-10 July 2009.
This conference will have broad appeal for all professionals who have an interest in the conservation of 20th century heritage: conservation professionals, government officials, academics and post-graduate students. An innovative program with an array of national and international speakers, all of whom are leaders in their field, will ensure that delegates are exposed to the latest developments and trends in the identification, conservation and management of 20th Century heritage places. It promises to be an excellent educational forum for delegates.
The conference will consist of six broad themes:
Re-engaging with the original designer
War in the Pacific
Vulnerable periods & styles
Managing 20thC obsolescence
Re-thinking colonial heritage
The single house under threat
The organising committee is looking forward to working with industry partners to guarantee the strongest educational and technical program, superb social events and the best opportunities for sharing information about the conservation of 20th Century heritage with conference delegates.
