Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
For over 2000 years London has been settled by traders, exiles and adventurers from overseas. The achievements of these individuals and their communities are reflected in the city’s buildings and monuments. Their craftsmen and artists underpin much of what we appreciate in London’s vibrancy today.
This conference looks at the role of international heritage in perceptions of London as a great world city. It explores our understanding of London’s past, its global appeal, the value of heritage in rooting communities and its potential for strengthening the city’s future.
The Heritage of London Trust’s Conservation Conference has been held every year since 1983 and is a unique occasion when all London local authorities are represented and the latest planning ideas and developments discussed.
For the morning session, the theme is London’s international history; for the afternoon session, the theme is heritage in a global city.
The conference will be addressed by His Royal Highness The Duke of Gloucester KG, GCVO.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
