With more and more tourists eager to visit the new South Africa, a responsible and responsive heritage policy was seen as an urgent national priority. Amareswar Galla, director of the Australian Centre for Cultural Diversity Research and Development at the University of Canberra, was invited to serve as visiting professor during 1997 at the University of South Africa and to work as a specialist adviser, researcher and facilitator for the drafting of the Tshwane Declaration. His efforts earned him the inaugural presidential award for outstanding service for transformation planning and training granted by the South African Museums Association. He is the founder of a national programme for interdisciplinary and holistic studies in heritage management in Australia and a director of the country’s Board of Special Broadcasting Service as well as general secretary of the Asia Pacific Organization of ICOM and chairperson of ICOM’s Cross-cultural Taskforce.
