Nature Culture: Interpreting the Divide
2005 Interpretation Australia National Conference 2-6 October, Strahan, Tasmania
Explore vital issues in an extraordinary place at this year’s IAA National Conference. What better place is there than Strahan in the heart of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area to discuss ideas like:
- Where does nature end and culture begin?
- Does culture trample nature?
- What are some practical ways of reconnecting culture and nature: people and the environment?
Come along to a region rich in Aboriginal, convict, mining and forestry heritage and interact with thought-provoking keynote speakers James Carter (Scotland), Jim Everett (Tasmania), Sam Ham (USA) and Julia Clark (Tasmania). It will be a stimulating and challenging conversation between heritage interpreters, park rangers, museum advisors, communications experts, designers, historians, planners and conservation buffs in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
Field trips (included in registration fees): 7 half-day field trips and a choice of:
- a cruise on Macquarie Harbour and up the magnificent Gordon River
- a great short railway journeys on the West Coast Wilderness Railway.
