Sacred Spaces – 5pm 19 Oct, Channel 31

On October 19 at 5pm, the Council’s latest instalment of Sacred Spaces will air on Channel 31.

The Heritage Council of Victoria has supported Sacred Spaces, the community television program celebrating architecture in Melbourne and the built environment for many years. It promotes debates about architecture and brings it to a wider audience.

The new episode filmed in conjunction with the National Trust of Australia (Victoria) looks at the iconic Rippon Lea Estate.

The adverse effects of climate change are being widely experienced across Victoria. Heritage places can play a key role in climate adaptation and mitigation. Rippon Lea is one of 10 case studies commissioned by the Heritage Council, exploring how heritage places are responding to climate change. The case studies can be found here: Case studies | Heritage Council of Victoria

Many thanks to Jeff Robinson for nominating his Sacred Space and to the National Trust for providing access to this incredible property.
