Description

One-off event: Sat 14 September 2019

Heritage conservation and environmental conservation: what do they have in common and how can they work together?

Our cultural heritage is always under threat from damage and decay. Our environment is suffering from the effects of unsustainable human activity. But what do these things have in common? What kind of pressures on our environment affect our culture and vice versa?

To mark Heritage Open Days, The Portico Library holds one day of activities on Sat 14 September exploring the relationship between cultural heritage and the natural environment.

In the morning, some drop-in activities will be available for you to engage with while you move throughout the library, where the accessible spaces and opening hours will be extended on this special day.

At 2pm there will be a discussion and Q&A with two specialists from the heritage and environmental sectors who will further draw out some of the interesting overlaps between these areas.

The Library also launches its Endangered Book list in a bid to preserve its threatened collection items.

More details and speakers to be announced.

If you can't come to this special event on Sat 14 September then please visit The Portico's website for our opening hours and public programme: https://www.theportico.org.uk/
