The Future of Heritage
10 April - 27 September 2019
The Future of Heritage is a new exhibition in the British Council's London headquarters exploring how the Cultural Protection Fund is creating opportunities for sustainable development in the Middle East and North Africa, whilst protecting, recording, conserving and restoring heritage at risk of being lost forever.
The exhibition displays a unique range of objects on loan from Cultural Protection Fund projects, including a hand-woven carpet made by artisans in Afghanistan; craft pieces inspired by Egyptian Mamluk minbars; stonework carved by Syrian refugee trainee stonemasons; and handmade models of traditional Iraqi watercraft.
The exhibition is free and open to the public at:
British Council London
10 Spring Gardens
London SW1A 2BN
