Reimagine what makes the Capital Region unique at the Canberra and Region Heritage Festival

堪培拉地区遗产节, 带你领略首都地区的独特魅力 Story by Bo Wu

From 14 April to 3 May 2020, there will be 20 days of the Canberra and Region Heritage Festival for you to explore what makes this capital region unique. The festival covers the most amazing assortment of activities designed to engage and immerse audiences in our natural, Aboriginal and built heritage. CBRLife, being a curious media team and wanting to ensure our readers know about the heritage festival, had a chat with Linda Roberts,the Community Engagement & Festival Coordinator for ACT Heritage. About the Heritage Festival Heritage festivals were first set up in response to the demolition of old buildings. At that time in the 1970s Australia had no laws to protect our heritage. In the large cities of Melbourne and Sydney, unions had ‘green bans’ where their workers refused to knock down these old sites. Many people were very upset to see these beautiful old buildings reduced to rubble. With more awareness of our heritage and new laws introduced to protect our heritage, people said, "let's have some events to celebrate our history". Victoria was first to develop a heritage festival in 1980, with Canberra following in 1982. Linda talked to us about the theme of this year’s heritage festival. "Each October, I start preparing for the next

在交谈中,Linda 告诉我们关于堪培拉遗产节的更多 故事。

关于遗产节 遗产节最初是为了应对“拆除旧建筑”而设立的。

Australia are very young compared to Chinese heritage. But with our Aboriginal heritage, we go back over 25,000 years. With 80% of Namadgi National Park burnt, we don't have any tours going into those areas where you can see a rock art site or other places of cultural importance. Often, we will have Aboriginal guides who reveal their knowledge and connection to Country. That is an important part of our festival." Events of this year Linda has told us of some of the highlights this year’s heritage festival. Firstly, there is the Australian National Botanic Gardens’ 50th anniversary. "Celebrating our natural heritage provides wonderful insights to living in the bush capital. We have many tourists and local people who visit the Botanic Gardens, which is running a special Banksia Festival and opening a year’s festival,” she said. “A new theme is chosen as a way of refreshing the artwork and providing a new focus. Last year, our theme was ‘space’, as we commemorated 50 years since man landed on the Moon, and Canberra’s important role in that event. Some years, the theme might be an anniversary. But this year it is ‘reimagine’. So, this is where you can revisit places and memories and reconceptualise what heritage is. It is looking backwards and forwards." From 14 April 2020 to 3 May 2020, this year’s festival has over 170 events, mostly free. People can enjoy tours, open days, dances, talks, dinners, markets and more. The festival raises awareness of the ongoing need to conserve the region's natural, historic and Aboriginal heritage. Its events are aimed at all different age groups. Because the festival falls within the school holidays, there are lots of events for children. Linda said, "Over the years, we have been trying to produce a program that will attract a broader audience not just older people, but also younger people - so they understand our heritage. So, you may think Canberra and

new Banksia Garden there," said Linda. The Australian National Botanic Gardens maintains a scientific collection of native plants from all parts of Australia. The plants are displayed for the enjoyment and education of visitors and are used for research into plant classification and biology. An herbarium of preserved plant specimens is closely associated with the living collection. The Gardens also cultivates plants threatened in the wild. This helps protect them against extinction and provides information which might assist reintroduction to their natural habitat.

Griffin, the National Carillon was a gift from the British 50th anniversary of the national capital. Linda told us more about the National Carillon. "It is the bell tower that you see on the side of the lake and it is also turning 50. There are many events planned: an exhibition, children events, tours and the official birthday celebration. The heritage festival is often a chance to get ‘behind the

events that aim to showcase Canberra's unique midcentury modern places. Linda said, "The modernist markets focus on the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, which is when there was rapid development of Canberra. The ACT is home to some very important architecture of that time and, by hosting many tours, talks and an exhibition, we hope that people will value what we have from this era. We challenge people to reimagine how we can reuse the old buildings and bring new life to them for a new generation.” scenes’ and visit places not normally open to the public. The Carillon tours are free, but book out very quickly as only a small number can attend each tour. You actually see the bells and how they work. So, the Carillon is something very interesting." Carillons have a minimum of 23 bells. With 57 bronze bells, the National Carillon is large by world standards. The pitch of the bells ranges chromatically through four and one-half octaves. The bells each weigh between seven kilograms and six tonnes. Cast in England by John Taylor & Co of Loughborough, they are fine examples of the art of bell founding. With the tower rising to a height of 50 metres, this allows the music of the bells to drift across Lake Burley Griffin and through Kings and Commonwealth Parks. The tower is lit at night, providing a magnificent landmark in the national capital. The new Ngunnawal Bell will be a feature of the 50th anniversary. Another highlight of the heritage festival that attracts a lot of visitors is the Modernist Market, made up of traditional market-style stalls including sellers of vintage clothing, jewelry, books, and homewares as well as food. People can take a look at some of the era's cars at the show and shine' classic car display or enjoy vintage hair and makeup demonstrations. Dress in your best modernist outfits and join in the best-dressed competition, or whip up one of Nana's recipes for the baking competition. Canberra Modern is an annual program of interconnected

and there is also the opportunity to visit some of the churches such as the Macedonian Orthodox Church or St Andrew’s in Forrest with beautiful stained glass windows. Of great interest is All Saint’s Church in Ainslie. It was once a railway station at Rookwood Cemetery in Sydney where the trains brought the coffins from Central station.

here. That goes very well with our theme ‘reimagine’. So how we can reuse old buildings to have a good use for today?" "Another good adaptive reuse is the old industrial building the Power House in Kingston, which is now the Canberra Glassworks. ACT Heritage is really happy when these old buildings get a new use. They used to produce electricity for the new city of Canberra. So, we are really delighted that they’ve been turned into such a popular tourist attraction and a facility for glass artists. It’s a great success story," said Linda. You can also stay active during the Heritage Festival by joining walking tours, colonial bush dancing and bike rides.

On April 5, just before the heritage festival begins, there is a special tour talking about Chinese settlement in the Canberra district. It reviews the history of the early Chinese settlers of this area from the time of the gold rush. Chinese people settled here in the 1800s, and they're an important part of Australian history.

World Heritage Day is on April 18. All around the world, people celebrate places and traditions that are very important to civilization. It marks the start of the Australian Heritage Festival. Each state and territory also runs its own heritage festival around then. The Canberra and Region Heritage Festival fits within those celebrations. It's been going for 38 years. A festival to honor our civilization Talking about the significance of the heritage festival, Linda said, "I think it is drawing attention to our heritage. It is made of things that cannot be replaced. Once they're knocked down, you cannot recreate them. It is very important for us to educate people so that they value heritage and then learn to look after it." Through the heritage festival, people experience what is special to Canberra and what is special to this region. For

local people, it gives them a sense of wellbeing. They gain pride in Canberra and a sense of belonging. The festival is important, especially for new people making Canberra their home. They feel connected as they start to learn a bit about this new city. Linda also told us how important the festival was to community groups. She said, "We have many community groups involved who may host an open day or guide a tour. It’s a chance to attract new members to their group who may help look after our bush by pulling out weeds or planting, or monitoring wildlife. It can have an ongoing legacy like that. The festival also allows people to show off their skills. They may have a particular craft skill to demonstrate which is of great interest, especially as

these skills are becoming more and more rare. Finally, collections are put on display, such as. cars, other machines, antiques or old photos, medals or jewelry. Each year, for example, we have the clock and watchmakers exhibit some exquisite items." After each festival, Linda receives lots of feedback and produces a report to see how we can improve each year. Some of the positive comments have focused on the opportunities the heritage festival provides children to see old skills. Some grandparents of young children have told her, "this is how we used to do it, it’s a good way to introduce children to history." "For me, I am very happy when people who have lived in Canberra their whole life still learn something new about Canberra. People new to Canberra also learn about our history. It's important for people to understand where they've come from. Like Confucius said “Study the past if you would define the future.” It is very important for a young city like Canberra to remember that before it was the capital, there were many farms and rural property and before European settlement, there was the very long history of our Aboriginal people." said Linda.

So at the age of 18 she decided to become a

barmaid and waitress. This was a job which required a lot of talking and communicating.

Her first bar job was at a bowling club. “At bowling

clubs, everyone would drink exactly the same drink, but my dad said that my job was to say, ‘Hi, how

are you going? And what would you like to drink?’

Always one to follow the rules when learning, I just followed his instructions.”

It was funny really, because I would have a line

up of 40 or more people, all buying the exact same

drink (a middy of VB) and I would be saying, ‘Hi how

are you going and what would you like to drink?’ And all of the customers would say, ‘Misty! There is only

one drink!’ But over time as I relaxed, learned to pull a good beer, take money and give change back to

the customer I then moved to other simple questions like, “Is it hot outside? Would you like something

to eat? How is your game going?’ And in this way I learned to talk and communicate.”

For 10 years Misty worked as a barmaid and

waitress, and over this time she discovered that her job wasn’t to sell food and drink, but to help

individuals “relax after a long day” or “enjoy time with their family” or “celebrate a milestone”.

“The food and drink was just the excuse to be out.

Every sales book could get her hands on, she read and took notes and practiced the examples. "Back in 2002, the internet was around, but I didn't have it. I didn't have a computer, so I would say to my
