Upcoming Culture in Crisis Event: ‘Heritage Under Attack: The impact on Post Conflict Reconstruction in the Middle East’

The Victoria and Albert Museum’s Culture in Crisis Programme, in partnership with the REVIVE Campaign, are pleased to announce a hybrid in-person and online seminar exploring the past, present and future of damage and destruction to cultural heritage as a result of conflict and war in the Middle East. Bringing together experts from different fields, the session will be an opportunity to hear current research and concerns around the impact of conflict on heritage and what can be done to mitigate the risks and to restore cultural heritage that has been damaged or destroyed.

There will be a networking session after the presentations for in-person attendees.
