On Wednesday 5 September 2018, the V&A will host a FREE event – Culture in Crisis: Engaging Youth for the Preservation of Heritage in the Middle East.

Three organisations, each funded by the British Council’s Cultural Protection Fund, discuss the challenges and breakthroughs of their work with young people across the Middle East to protect and preserve their threatened cultural heritage.

The event will look at the safeguarding of cultural festivals, traditional crafts and customs in Lebanon; the development of educational workshops for refugee children in Jordan; and the engagement of young people exploring the relationship between their cultural heritage, landscape and agriculture in the Occupied-Palestinian Territories.

The event is FREE to attend.  Book your place via the V&A website: https://www.vam.ac.uk/shop/whatson/index/view/id/8858
