Repatriation of Cultural Patrimony

October 10, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Demands for repatriation of lost cultural patrimony and stolen human remains make weekly headlines around the world. Join the Chinese American Museum of Chicago, the Ethiopian Community Association of Chicago, the Mitchell Museum of the American Indian and the National Hellenic Museum in deepening your understanding of the complexities of repatriation in this panel discussion. Experts will share the history, repercussions in the community, and current repatriation efforts in Indigenous communities of the US and Canada, China, Greece, and Ethiopia. 

The discussion will be accompanied by a photographic pop-up exhibit showing how the demands for the return of lost cultural treasures can unite ethnicities and nationalities.

The pop-up exhibit will open at 5pm followed by the discussion at 6pm.
