2022 Theme- Curiosity

9 APRIL- 1 MAY 2022

Mercure Canberra is proud to be the official accommodation partner of the ACT Heritage Festival. Festival events schedule and accommodation packages will be available to book in early 2022.

Festival Overview

The 2022 Heritage Festival theme is ‘Curiosity’. It will invite audiences to challenge how they see the tangible and intangible heritage that makes our region unique and allow for the development of broad and inclusive events from community groups and stakeholders in the ACT and surrounding district. The theme offers event organisers opportunities to create events for us to:

  • learn from Ngunnawal and other Aboriginal people of their deep knowledge of and continuing connection to the land
  • learn about the industries of the early colonists and the innovations of Canberra’s 20th century planning, engineering and architecture
  • explore the heritage of science and innovation in our region, the diverse collections of our museums, galleries and science centres, and our natural and geological heritage hidden in plain sight.
