What is heritage? How is heritage changing? As part of West Fest 2018, these questions will be discussed as part of a forum on the heritage of NSW on Thursday 18 October.

Heritage plays a vital role in defining who we are. Reflecting our identity, heritage is made up of our culturally diverse histories, traditions and practices, and built environment. Sharing and celebrating the diversity of our heritage in NSW can help connect people from different backgrounds and influence how we design our suburbs, towns and cities.

Join us for an evening of discussion, delving into why and how we can recognise the diverse heritage our communities, as we explore the exciting topic of ‘Culture, Diversity and the Future of Heritage’.

Panel members include:

  • Dr Sarah Barns, Western Sydney University
  • Yamane Fayed, Information and Cultural Exchange, Parramatta
  • Dr Raymond Kelly, University of Newcastle
  • Fatma Isir, Director, Africultures Festival
  • Jacqui Newling, Sydney Living Museums.

When: Thursday 18 October, 6:00pm-8:30pm
Where: Skye Hotel Suites, 30 Hunter St, Parramatta NSW
Cost: Free. Complimentary canapes and refreshments will be available from 6pm, with the panel beginning at 7pm. Reserve your spot below.
