For many, their relationship with cultural heritage shifts and changes over time. For others, they feel a constant and strong connection to their cultural heritage. The question is, what is it about cultural heritage that draws people to it? When people feel distant, why are they drawn back?
The World Federation's 5th Executive Council (ExCo) will be held in Birmingham, England on Saturday 2nd November 2019.
Join us on 1st of November for Question Time at 9.15pm and 2nd November for the final Executive Council Meeting (ExCo) from 9am.
