Event description

Description

Britain's arts and heritage sectors have endeavoured to open the doors to diversity and inclusion in recent times. What does ‘decolonisation’ actually involve and how far have they come and how much further is left to go? This discussion will take in debates around quotas, diversity schemes, repatriation of objects and overcoming structural inequality to create a richer, broader arts and heritage landscape in terms of its workforce and audiences.

This ThinkIn is hosted in partnership with Babbasa, one of our Tortoise Network connecting partners.


Our special guests include:

Michael Liversidge, Emeritus Dean, Faculty of Arts, University of Bristol

Sue Giles, Senior Curator, World Cultures, Bristol Museums

Pravanya Pillay, Founder and Director, Stomping Ground


Chair: Ravin Sampat, Editor and Partner, Tortoise


What is a Tortoise ThinkIn?

A ThinkIn is not another panel discussion. It is a forum for civilised disagreement. Modelled on what we call a ‘leader conference’ in the UK (or an editorial board in the US), it is a place where everyone has a seat at the table. It’s where we get to hear what you think, drawn from your experience, energy and expertise. It’s where, together, we sift through what we know to come to a clear, concise point of view. It is the heart of what we do at Tortoise.

Refreshments from 18:00, starts promptly at 18:30. If you are late to a ThinkIn you can 'SlinkIn'!

If you would like to contribute to this ThinkIn, let us know by emailing thinkin@tortoisemedia.com

We film our ThinkIns so we can watch them back, edit the best bits and share them with members who weren’t there in person.

Members can find their ThinkIn booking code in My Tortoise, under My Membership.
