Overview

You will look at cities with a divisive heritage (Bristol as a slave port) and a post-migration heritage (such as Cologne in Germany). You will will also look at major post-colonial urban centres and how they used cultural diversity to revitalise inner city areas. You will also consider those cities that turn diversity into a branding tool, like Singapore or Doha.

  • Identify the challenges and opportunities of cultural diversity in cities
  • Design creative solutions to deal with contested heritage
  • Assess labels aimed at promoting inclusive heritage in diverse cities
