Cultural Heritage Services

  

What is Cultural Heritage Management? 

Cultural Heritage Management is the vocation and practice of managing cultural heritage. It is a branch of cultural resources management, although it also draws on the practices of cultural conservation, restoration, museology, archaeology, history and architecture.

In our own local areas across Australia there are many Aboriginal Corporations such as yours that need assistance with organizing, estimating, scoping and reporting on surveys and items of cultural significance.

This requires a great deal of patience dealing with the people involved, the requested work force and liaising with 3rd parties.
