conference contributionposted on 22.06.2021, 04:49 by David Batchelor, Marc Aurel Schnabel, Karl Lofgren
The governance of future built environments requires novel interdisciplinary discourses to address the complex needs within cities. Smart Heritage, the novel convergence of smart city and heritage disciplines, is one such interdisciplinary discourse that local governments can leverage for unique perspectives and capabilities. To deliver interdisciplinary discourses like Smart Heritage, it is the task for local governments to orchestrate the knowledge, processes, and initiatives between the two contributing disciplines and apply them to their local context and needs. However, as a novel discourse, no academic research is present on how smart city and heritage disciplines converge to deliver Smart Heritage within local government. This paper reports on the interdisciplinary knowledge, processes, and initiatives between the smart city and heritage disciplines in local government. The research conducted interviews with smart city and heritage advisors from three local governments in Australia and draws key findings on these themes. The findings from an academic understanding of how local governments engage with the Smart Heritage discourse.
