Why the #ParthenonMarbles Must be Returned

Our International Liaison Officer, Russell Darnley OAM has compiled this short video presentation outlining reasons why heritage should be left in its dynamic relationship with the biophysical environment and the cultural landscape.

At first Russell reacted to the principle of Elgin’s pilfering of the Parthenon but later came to realise another compelling reality. Heritage has its greatest meaning and can make the most significant contribution to the present when it remains where it is, in its original biophysical, cultural and historical context.

We invite similar short video presentations from our supporters. Simply email a link to your work on Vimeo or YouTube to restitutionaustralia at gmail.com
