‘Heritage Conservation and Preservation of Artisan and Rare Trade Skills – Our Collective Responsibility’ is the second ISS Institute Illuminate Series Forum. Drawing upon the knowledge, experience and leadership of our Fellows and supporters, our aim is to take attendees on a journey of understanding about why the preservation of heritage and rare trades is critical for Australia’s future.
At this event we will also be launching our Ian Potter Foundation funded ‘Heritage Preservation Network (supporting Australian artisans and rare tradespersons)’. This initiative will see ISS Institute draw upon our rich connections to build a national network of rare arts, crafts, trades and heritage experts to collectively share knowledge and learnings and support the transfer of these skills to future generations.
Each of the following presenters are experts in their respective areas and committed to cultural heritage and the preservation of such skills and knowledge in Australia. Presenters at our Illuminate Series #2 event will be:
