McIntyre Lecture: From the Corkman to Fed Square: Heritage Protection Reconsidered for the 21st Century
March 13, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$20
As the Chair of the Royal Historical Society of Victoria’s Heritage Committee, Charles Sowerwine is eminently qualified to describe the historic and current challenges to heritage and conservation in Melbourne.
In his lecture, he will outline the nature of these challenges and illustrate these with current significant heritage campaigns, from the Queen Victoria Market and Federation Square to local issues. He will focus particularly on the increasing tension between development and heritage overlays, typified by the Corkman Hotel affair.
This is a ticketed event, which covers the cost of Council support staff in attendance, refreshments and a gift for the speaker. Seating is limited in the Just Theatre, so the early purchase of tickets is advised.
