Our program includes a packed schedule of social events including drinks with our Principal Partners Lovell Chen Architects & Heritage Consultants, and a closing party at Jack’s Powder Magazine—which has only recently been reopened to the public—hosted by our Silver Partners Working Heritage. The conference dinner will take place at Abbotsford Convent, one of Melbourne’s hidden gems, which was saved by a community campaign in the 1990s and is now one of Australia’s biggest arts precincts.
We are also excited to offer two immersive satellite events prior to the conference on 4–5 October. A two-day hands-on conservation workshop hosted by APT International Australasian Chapter and the National Trust will provide an opportunity to learn about decorative finishes at two of the Trust’s magnificent Melbourne properties, Labassa Mansion and Rippon Lea Estate. Meanwhile, for the museum crowd, keynote Franklin Vagnone will offer half-day workshops at Rippon Lea Estate.
