Tai Kwun Conversations: UNESCO Series – Heritage, Power and Gender in Cities

5 September 2022

Presented by Tai Kwun – Centre for Heritage and Arts in collaboration with UNESCO Asia and Pacific Regional Bureau for Education (UNESCO Bangkok), this series of conversations explores innovative strategies for integrating urban heritage into the wider goals of sustainable development.

With a regional focus on Asia and the Pacific, it aims to inspire local actions and creative solutions as catalysts for implementing the Recommendation on the Historic Urban Landscape and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The final Tai Kwun Conversations in the UNESCO Series considers gender roles, social mores, power relations, and the impact on urban inclusion or exclusion and social mobility or immobility. Speakers share their views on rewriting heritage narratives and reimagining an inclusive urban community that represents a multiplicity of identities.
