This webinar will focus on why it is so important to develop and maintain cultural contacts with Iran, a country often seen through a political lens. The discussion panel consists of four people with extensive experience in this area: Neil MacGregor, former Director of the British Museum; Vesta Sarkhosh Curtis, curator of Middle Eastern coins at the British Museum; Jon Snow of Channel 4 News; and Mahrukh Tarapor, former Associate Director at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. They will review recent cultural contacts and consider ways in which these can be built on and expanded in the future. The discussion will be chaired by John Curtis, Academic Director of the Iran Heritage Foundation.
