Cultural heritage experts from around the world will descend into Sydney as more than 1200 delegates from 100 countries attend the 21st General Assembly and Scientific Symposium of ICOMOS (the International Council on Monuments and Sites), bringing new World Heritage perspectives to the nation.
With over 150 events across ten days, the engaging program will involve thought-provoking site visits, functions, workshops, lectures and a five-day Scientific Symposium. The community will have access to free events including a major Heritage Exposition, Heritage Trades Fair and Heritage Lecture.
As the first ICOMOS General Assembly to be held in the Pacific region, the event’s theme will explore ‘Heritage Changes: Resilience – Responsibility – Rights – Relationships’ and reflects the tumultuous changes taking place in the world over the past few years, and the role of heritage in supporting recovery.
