Retrieving cultural heritage

 Teatro Adolfo Mejía

Centuries of history are buried underground, and there also exist archaeological remains and objects that belong to a culture but which are on display thousands of kilometres away… our three international guests put into context why it is important to recover cultural heritage, tell its story and include it in educational plans, as well as to reflect it in museum collections. Javier Ortiz Cassiani, writer and historian, will talk to Ángela María Pérez, academic and currently deputy cultural manager of Banco de la República in Colombia, which includes 29 cultural centers in Colombia with libraries and museums; David Olusoga (Nigeria/UK), a historian, presenter and filmmaker, lecturer in Manchester and the author of several books; and Laura Osorio Sunnucks (Mexico/UK), former Head of the Santo Domingo Centre for Excellence for Latin American Research at the British Museum and now Head of Research and Collections at the Linden Museum in Germany.

With Adriana Molano and academic Erna von der Walde.
