Kellogg Urban Knowledge Exchange: Urban Heritage in pictures

26 April 2018

In March Kellogg launched a series of ‘lively’ debates to tackle urban issues such as affordable housing and rapid urbanisation.

The College will host seminars every two months for the next year so that a cross-section of people from different backgrounds can debate urban issues. The events are open to the general public as well as members of Kellogg and the University of Oxford.

Historians, artists and architects launched the series of debates on 14th March, when they discussed whether public art has a place in, or as part of, the urban environment.

The second event in the series was on 25th April and examined how urban heritage can be managed in today’s era of smart cities, emerging technologies, increasing population and rapid urban development.

Speakers: Dr Geoffrey Tyack, Emeritus Fellow in Architectural History, Kellogg College. Professor Leidulf Mydland, Head of Community Department, Norwegian Directorate for Cultural Heritage. Debbie Dance, Director, Oxford Preservation Trust. Barbara Weiss, Skyline Campaign. Chair: Dr Oliver Cox, Heritage Engagement Fellow, University of Oxford.

Further event photographs can be found on the Kellogg Facebook Page.

The next event is on 13th June, and will focus on rapid urbanisation. The events are free and open to all, join the debate #urbankellogg
