Community Heritage

Specialist conversations about heritage, history and place.

Our trusted heritage consultants engage with First Nations and diverse community groups to ensure we understand the special attachments, significant values, traditions and cultural practices that are part of Australia’s living cultural heritage.

We work collaboratively and sensitively with people to ensure that the planning, management and conservation of heritage places is informed by the communities with significant associations and attachments.

We recognise and respect people’s rights and interests and provide culturally safe places and ensure that cultural knowledge is protected. With a combination of heritage expertise, an appreciation of cultural protocols and participatory engagement techniques, we apply best practice participatory methods and innovative frameworks.  We strive to generate positive outcomes for communities, cultural heritage and our clients.
