Aboriginal culture is largely missing from the planning context. It is often considered when undertaking archaeological investigations and recording heritage but rarely in the design of places.

Recently introduced objects in the NSW Environmental Protection and Assessment Act promote good design and requires sustainable management of built and cultural heritage including Aboriginal cultural heritage. By developing a cultural framework and proposing a method of cultural mapping, GANSW aims to support the requirement in the Act and other regulatory requirements in a practical way to enable future development in our state to be designed with and connected to Country.

Dillon Kombumerri will outline the policy context for Designing with Country and how GANSW is currently working with the design industry, government and Community to explore opportunities to Design with Country.

Danièle Hromek will talk about how First Peoples occupy, use, narrate, sense, dream and contest their spaces. This will include discussion on our obligations, Dreaming, songs, belonging to and management of land and how space for Indigenous peoples is related to Country.
