Seminar Weds 22 Jan – What matters and why: fun with heritage!

The next seminar in the Spring series will be led by Kate Clark, an international Visiting Fellow with us at UCS, based currently in the New South Wales Government, Australia.

Kate Clark

Kate is a museum director and heritage manager, with a special interest in concepts of value and how they inform decision-making in heritage.  She has worked in with Sydney Living Museums, the Heritage Lottery Fund, English Heritage and Ironbridge Gorge Museums, and has written about heritage policy, public value, significance, sustaining heritage and industrial archaeology, as well as museum practice.

Kate’s workshop will range widely across ideas about cultural heritage and its value to communities, the economy, environment and society, using techniques she has developed in working with community groups. It will touch on the recent museum branding work she has done with Sydney Living Museums.

The seminar will be held on Wednesday (not the normal day!), at 4.30pm at the Waterfront Building, UCS Ipswich campus.  As ever, please register with Julie Barber if you’d like to attend. Email: julie.barber@ucs.ac.uk
