INTO Dundee 2022
October 13, 2022
Millions of people visit heritage sites every year. And yet they are often shielded from what Professor Olusoga calls ‘the sharp bits of history’.
Addressing the pertinence of telling whole and equitable histories, Professor Olusoga joins us to ask how we move beyond heritage as a ‘soft play’ area.
In conversation with Alana Anderson, President of the Bermuda National Trust, this address will explore how heritage organisations can play their part to advance the cause of truth, equity and justice.
