Scottish Civic Trust Annual Conference: ‘Race and Heritage in Scotland’

Scottish Civic Trust Annual Conference: ‘Race and Heritage in Scotland’

2 December 2020 via Zoom

During 2020, the Black Lives Matter and anti-racism movements have thrown the consequences and legacies of the past into sharper focus. In Scotland, buildings, monuments, public spaces and street names have become a touchstone for discussions and action on racism, slavery, empire and colonialism. As a sector, we can struggle to find a way to approach such contentious topics.

In its role as advocate for a more diverse heritage, the Scottish Civic Trust warmly invites you to participate in our annual conference. We’ll discuss issues of race and heritage in Scotland and take the opportunity to reflect critically on our country’s approach using examples from further afield. We will learn about how we can come to terms with difficult histories and share it as part of a more inclusive understanding of Scotland’s built environment and cultural heritage.
