Discussions: The Chennai Heritage Forum Session #11 – Aug. 20, 2022

This Madras Week, we aspire to bring together initiatives led by young professionals in history, heritage, and allied fields in Chennai working towards a common purpose – documenting historical narratives and safeguarding the preservation of all forms of heritage. These initiatives have been steadily fostering varied conversations on material memories, and cultural links, and working in the field of architectural restoration. Through a panel discussion on various aspects of Madras’ history, we intend to share their fresh perspectives. We also aim to discuss their missions, aspirations, and roles in today’s society along with ways in which the community can help take their initiatives forward while interacting with the community stakeholders.

The panel will include:
• Ashna Lulla and Vignesh Sivakumar from With Love, Madras
• Keerthana Muralidharan and Aishwarya K V from Conservation Mainstream
• Ashmitha Athreya from Madras Inherited

Come join to discuss your opinions and viewpoints on these diverse topics and learn how you can contribute to our efforts.
