Panelists were asked to give their views about the relevance of heritage in the digital age. The panel included national broadcaster Richard Fidler; author and social commentator, Benjamin Law; author, feminist and educator, dr dale spender and journalist Kathleen Noonan.

You can also peruse a slideshow of iconic Queensland images which were screened during the evening.

This event was held to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Queensland Heritage Act 1992. The Act allows us to take stock of our precious heritage places and provides protection to places that might otherwise have been lost.  Heritage places help us define what it means to be a Queenslander.

This presentation was part of the Out of the Port lecture series, presented by the State Library of Queensland and the Department of Environmental and Heritage Protection.
