WA State Heritage & History Conference 2017


What are the threads that connect places with their past? How does history help our understanding of heritage? What common knowledge and skills support a successful local museum and an Indigenous cultural tourism business?

On the 11 & 12 May 2017, the Heritage, History and Collections (GLAM) sectors came together to share and explore the many elements that contribute to WA’s unique past.

This event promised a milestone in bringing together a broad range of experience, knowledge and understanding from many different projects, organisations and backgrounds, and with more than 375 participants, achieved this with flourish.

As principal sponsor, the Heritage Council was proud to support this event and is delighted with the outcome. We hope to maintain the momentum and interest generated by the conference and will be continuing the discussions started during the event.

Most of the presentations given over the two days of the conference can be downloaded from the website at
