ACT Director and professor Azra Akšamija will be in conversation with Ghanian artist Ibrahim Mahama during this panel discussion called Towards a Balanced Representation of World Heritage sites.

The challenges experienced by the World Heritage properties are the symptoms of crises of global magnitude. The solution-oriented discussions around the future of our World Heritage therefore, require expertise well beyond the realm of heritage.

UNESCO launched “50 Minds for The Next 50” to convene fifty leading, innovative, bold, respected thinkers of our times from diverse disciplines for the most interdisciplinary discussion on World Heritage ever to be held.

Five dialogue sessions covering five themes will take place in 2022, each joined by thinkers in paired dialogue from diverse regions.  The public is invited to follow online.
