Historians, Places and the Past

Come along to this event to hear a panel of experts discuss the ethical questions and practical challenges that arise in place-making projects and historic sites.

Place-making and heritage projects can result in fresh interpretations of historic sites but they can also prove controversial.

The development of heritage sites and historically-significant places should be informed by expert advice and the history of the development site. However, this is not always the case — sometimes advice is not heeded. Heritage projects require compromise and many factors influence final outcomes.

Chaired by Emeritus Sir John Monash Distinguished Professor Graeme Davidson AO, this panel will also feature a short Q&A.


Presented by History Council of Victoria.
