OWNING THE PAST EXHIBITION FILM
In this film, we hear from some of those involved in the creation of the 2021 exhibition Owning The Past: From Mesopotamia to Iraq.
The dual language (Arabic and English) exhibition highlighted the long-lasting impact of the past on the present, and questioned what is meant by heritage. It introduced voices and stories of people not previously visible in displays devoted to the very histories and heritage of their homelands.
The film features Community Ambassadors Nuha Abdo and Mustafa Barcho; Community Engagement Officer Nicola Bird; Exhibition co-curators Paul Collins and Myfanwy Lloyd; and Artist Piers Secunda.
