Event description

Description

‘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 FREE 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. You are welcome to invite colleagues or peers to join you at this event.
