Kate Rudge, Australia/UK (Class of 0)

“I am from the UK originally but am also now an Australian citizen. I am completely new to the field of world heritage, cultural heritage and museum studies and am extremely interested to hear about the perspectives and backgrounds of the other students in the program. The course is a fantastic opportunity to gain a deeper, real-life understanding of the issues and approaches involved in the field. My background is in creative industries, mainly film and comedy production and I am keen to explore new methods of understanding and communicating the cultural heritage context of current issues as a way of negotiating innovative collaborative solutions. I am also interested in the protection of natural landscapes and native species and learning about the preservation of historical buildings and sites.” - Kate
