32. SAVING THE PAST: THE FUTURE OF OUR HERITAGE
Trevor Dolby, John Orna-Ornstein, Rachel Spence
Wednesday 26th June 14:30 (60 Min)
IPGL Stage
Culture and power have been uneasy bedfellows since ancient times but today with money in scarce supply for our heritage, this uneasiness has boiled over in rancour. Protesters force out patrons and curators of exhibitions, and pressure museums to abandon fossil fuel sponsorship. Campaigners demand equality and diversity, condemn exploitation of artists and staff, and urge restitution of imperially tainted objects. Journalist Rachel Spence, John Orna-Ornstein, Director of Curation and Experience for the National Trust, and Tom Holland discuss how we got to this situation, and what awaits our cultural and heritage institutions.
