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 will join to share and explore the many elements that contribute to WA’s unique past. This event promises to be a milestone in bringing together a broad range of experience, knowledge and understanding from many different projects, organisations and backgrounds.
The Heritage Council recognises the importance of good information and education, and has stepped into the role of principal sponsor for this event.
