Focus Theme: Australia 
2020-22


Purpose 

Australia is home to the world’s oldest continuous cultures, on Earth’s most stable and arid inhabited continent.

Australia also happens to contain one third of all known uranium: a material that produces waste which must be “isolated from people and their environment” for up to 30,000 generations. Australia is therefore a critical—yet heretofore neglected—site for understanding nuclear radiation as future cultural and environmental heritage.


Planned activities include a major project that draws global conversations on nuclear legacies and heritage to the Australia through a workshop and public programme.
