Case Study
Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Engagement and Facilitation

Element Advisory have a proven track record in striving for collaborative and culturally sensitive development outcomes for Aboriginal Cultural Heritage projects of varying scale across the state. Our proactive engagement approach acknowledges the significant role of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the Traditional Custodians of Australia and recognises their ongoing responsibilities and continuing connection to land, waters, culture, and knowledge.

Our teams regularly work alongside Aboriginal Cultural Advisors, Facilitators and Knowledge Holders to deliver considered and site-specific outcomes for our clients. Recent projects have seen the preparation of Cultural Context Reports, Due Diligence Assessments, Interpretation Strategies and Management Plans for a variety of public and private clients. Our extensive experience in the heritage sector and respectful engagement approach enables outcomes which effectively integrate shared heritage considerations and narratives.

Our proactive engagement with legislative and advisory bodies, best practice frameworks, and corporate emphasis on professional development outcomes put us at the forefront of heritage and conservation best practice in Australia. This approach ensures the team is supported with an in-depth understanding of all relevant statutory requirements and policy frameworks across sectors to deliver well-considered and appropriate cultural outcomes.
