Think ‘heritage’ is something old and dusty that you only find in a museum? Think again.
See, hear, taste, touch and explore our capital’s unique heritage at the 2019 Canberra and Region Heritage Festival.
From 13 April to 5 May over 200 diverse events will take place across the Canberra region, including talks, dinners, dances, tours, concerts, markets and more. Now in its 37th year, the Festival raises awareness of the ongoing need to conserve our natural, historic and Aboriginal heritage.
Get your moonwalk ready, because this year’s theme is out of this world. In 2019 we’re exploring ‘SPACE’!
In July the world will celebrate 50 years since man walked on the moon and that footage came from Honeysuckle Creek Tracking Station here in the ACT! The 2019 Festival is a great opportunity to discover the ACT’s space history through a number of fun, interactive and inspiring events.
Space is more than ‘outer space’. Walter Burley Griffin said ‘architecture is a space art’. Space can be an expanse, a landscape, a location, a possibility, a vacuum, or a relationship between objects people and places. What does space mean to you?
