Join us on 30 June for a panel discussion at the V&A, exploring the theme of Memory as part of the London Festival of Architecture

Organised in partnership with Historic England, Memory & Authenticity: Cultural Protection in Conflict will look at the challenges of protecting and preserving cultural heritage in post-conflict contexts.

Chaired by author and critic Robert Bevan, the panel represents a cohort of international speakers including Brendan Cormier, V&A Curator; Shoshana Stewart, CEO, Turquoise Mointain; Alexandra Warr, Senior International Advisor, Historic England, and architect and theorist Ines Weizman.

The panel will question who and what are the priorities for the protection of cultural heritage, addressing identity, place and memory, and the impact of digital technology in the future of preservation.

This talk will take place on Friday, 30 June, 3.30pm-5.30pm in The Lydia & Manfred Gorvy Lecture Theatre, V&A.

Tickets are £7 to £10 and can be purchased from the V&A website.
