Our Activating Heritage program enables adaptive re-use - with people at the centre
Government-owned heritage is special
It is our built legacy of settlement, development, industry and identity
We as government are the custodians of its tangible and intangible qualities
It offers opportunities to add vitality and realise new benefits in collaboration with business and community
We engage our community on the journey, creating human touchpoints
Creating sustainable commercial and cultural futures for our heritage assets
From 2020 we will be testing our new Activating Heritage Strategy for a small number of our government-owned built heritage places. These pilots will test the ways in which government and communities can work together to secure the future of significant built heritage.
We invite your insights into the ways in which built heritage places are adapted and re-used*.
