The Committee

Acting Chair: Kerry Anderson


As a small business owner and founder of the Operation Next Gen Program, Kerry Anderson works with rural Australian towns encouraging them to take control of their own future by looking at existing landscapes with fresh eyes. Committed to sharing positive stories of rural businesses and communities, she is the author of two books; Entrepreneurship: It’s Everybody’s Business (2016) and Australian Rural Entrepreneurs (2020) and frequently speaks at national and international conferences and events.  As part of her work she facilitates important community conversations with a rural emphasis.

In 2018 Kerry was named as one of Australia’s Top 50 Regional Agents-of-Change and awarded the Regional Innovation Ecosystem Leadership Award.

A graduate of the Australian Company Directors Course, Kerry serves on the Board of Castlemaine Health and is a volunteer tour guide at Buda Historic Home & Garden in Castlemaine.

Working Heritage manages heritage places on Crown land in Victoria, Australia, through conservation, adaptation and re-use. We are responsible for 16 heritage places across metropolitan and regional Victoria – from the Former Royal Mint in central Melbourne to court houses in rural towns. We specialise in managing government assets of heritage significance that are no longer needed to their original function – our role is to revitalise them to ensure they have a purpose. Finding contemporary uses for these places contributes to their continued care. 

Working Heritage acknowledges Victoria's Aboriginal communities and pays respect to their Elders both past and present. The organisation acknowledges the richness of Aboriginal cultures in Victoria and their connection to Country.

Our approach

We are non-profit and self-funded – funding for our work is generated by the places we manage. Our buildings and land are leased to a mixture of tenants including restaurants, arts organisations, community groups and commercial businesses. Working with tenants we conserve cultural significance, develop compatible uses and adapt buildings to suit contemporary needs. These places have special qualities that draw people to them, and by reusing them they can continue to be physical touchstones of community identity. 

Our organisation

Working Heritage is an incorporated Committee of Management appointed by the Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change under the Crown Land (Reserves) Act 1978. The Committee is supported by Executive Officer, Ross Turnbull, and a small team of staff who manage Working Heritage’s projects and operations.
