The RHSV is delighted that Kristin Stegley OAM, Chairman of the National Trust of Australia (Victoria), has accepted our invitation to deliver the 2019 Weston Bate Oration.
Kristin will explore the nexus between history and heritage, espeically the advocacy required to maintain and strengthen the vitality and integrity of both. Kristin, aware that the RHSV is interested in the National Trust’s view on the weaknesses and strengths of the heritage advocacy sector across the State, will take this opportunity to explore some of those views. How can we effect the best possible heritage outcomes through advocacy.
Kristin has extensive leadership experience in the Victorian cultural, philanthropic and local government sectors. An arts educator for over 20 years, Kristin has been a local government Councillor, Trustee of several philanthropic Foundations and a political activist.
She has volunteered with the National Trust for many years to promote the importance and value of heritage to our cultural well being.
This evening will start with the RHSV AGM & SGM at 5:00pm in the Officers Mess Upstairs – drinks will be served before and after the AGM. We will segue into The Weston Bate Oration at 6:15pm.
