“International Women’s Day is an important time to reflect and to acknowledge the amazing women of Artefact, the heritage industry and beyond.
Throughout my life I’ve witnessed the challenges we face as women – misogyny, unpaid childcare, balancing household and professional commitments, as well as struggles about body image, confidence and speaking out that come from expectations ingrained in us by society from childhood.
Respect especially to our First Nations women who live all of this on top of racial discrimination.
Acknowledgement is the core of change and I’m immensely proud to lead this team of talented female professionals in making Artefact an agent of change for women.”
Dr Sandra Wallace
(Founder & Managing Director)
Artefact is lending its support for Trove – the online collections database managed by the National Library of Australia.
Artefact has signed a Parliament of Australia e-petition as well as writing to the Federal Minister for the Arts Tony Burke MP asking that Trove maintain Government funding into the future.
Principal Dr Iain Stuart spoke with ABC Radio's James Valentine recently about the value of Trove for small to medium heritage consultancy firms like Artefact.
Woollahra development projects may now require Aboriginal Heritage Impact Assessment.
Artefact's team of professionals can help provide a Due Diligence report, and Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Assessment Report (ACHAR) to complete your DA. We have carried out recent projects in the Woollahra LGA including Rose Bay, Watsons Bay, Double Bay and Bellevue Hill.
Reports are prepared by our qualified Aboriginal heritage consultants on staff.
The theme of the 2023 Sydney Historical Archaeology Practitioners workshop is ‘Something New’, and we want to know, what is your ‘something new’? Presentations and papers are being sought for this workshop from students, academics and heritage professionals from both government and heritage consultancies who want the wider
archaeological community to know what new research they have been doing, what new results they have, or what new sites have they been excavating.
