Partnering with Blue Shield Australia, cultural institutions, professional associations and supported by the State Library of South Australia and the History Trust of South Australia, these workshops are designed to raise awareness in the cultural heritage community about steps you can take to ensure your collections are cared for into the future.

13 October of each year is the International Day for Disaster Risk Reduction, which promotes a global culture of risk awareness, disaster preparedness and disaster reduction. Australia has experienced significant natural disasters which have affected cultural heritage and collections. As we approach the 2022-2023 Australian disaster season it is timely to reflect and look at what we can practically put in place to safe guard our collections into the future.
