Benin display: Film screening, panel discussion and Q&A

Venue World Museum
Admission Free
Start Time 14:00
End Time 16:00

A film screening and panel discussion with members of Liverpool’s African diasporic community. Panel members will reflect on a series of workshops they attended at the Museum.

The workshops – recorded in the winter of 2019/20 – were designed to help the Museum rethink the display of its Benin collection, and address historical legacies of injustice to create a more inclusive and engaging display.

The new display, which will include a number of looted items, is part of the World Cultures gallery, which will reopen in 2022. The gallery will celebrate the Edo Kingdom’s brilliant inheritance of court art, and confront the violent colonial history behind its theft by a British force in 1897.

Free event, online booking essential.
