Heritage Day: Repatriation Of Artefacts From Museums

Wednesday 20 March

British museums and heritage institutions are grappling with facing the colonial origins of the collections they care for and the calls for reparations through the repatriation of artefacts to their country of origin.

 

Although a handful of museums and heritage institutions have returned artefacts, there are institutions who continue to argue the case for why repatriation of artefacts is not an option.

Serendipity’s Collections Archivist and Digital Archivist will focus on the issue of repatriation, how the heritage sector is currently approaching Britain’s colonial past and what the approach should be going forward.
