Theo Barker Memorial Lecture

Fri August 16 at 6:00 pm

Barbara Hickson will deliver her lecture titled “Let’s Do Heritage Differently.”  22 years’ experience in heritage management leads me to believe there may be many things, large and small , that we might do differently – more inclusive, more informed, less adversarial, less negative … or it might be time to throw the baby out,  bath and all. Let’s explore the options for making heritage management a winner for all concerned.

Barbara has lived in Mudgee and worked as an architect for 40 years and heritage adviser for the past 25 years. As a heritage adviser she has worked for 13 different NSW councils, but especially for Bathurst for 22 years. Travelling throughout the west and north-west, Barbara has experienced the full range of heritage problems, and in the process has won several National Trust awards including The Cathy Donnelly award in 2007. She has also won other New South Wales awards for work on the Cobb & Co heritage trail and for cemetery interpretation and has authored three books on cemeteries. Barbara still has a small local architectural practice in Mudgee which is primarily residential, and works on heritage matters.
