Jamie Oliver’s jerk rice and museum marbles: who owns culture?


Is it okay to wear a bindi at a festival when you’re not Hindu? Should we return the dozens of cultural artefacts in our museums acquired during the height of imperial empire? Should Jamie Oliver be selling jollof rice? The question of who owns culture has been a thorny topic since day dot. Join us to discuss who actually owns culture – and if anything, are we being oversensitive and does it really matter?


Special guests include:


Amma Aburam, Founder of Style and Sustain, sustainable fashion blog and co-founder of Inspire Afrika Magazine
Fiona Compton, photographer artist, filmmaker and historian; Founder of Paradise Fashion and Know Your Caribbean
Dr Sarah Cheang, Senior Tutor on the History of Design, Royal College of Art
Dr Serkan Delice, Lecturer and Research Coordinator in the Cultural and Historical department, London College of Fashion
Chair: Ravin Sampat, Head of Storytelling, Tortoise


What is a Tortoise ThinkIn?


A ThinkIn is not another panel discussion. It is a forum for civilised disagreement. Modelled on what we call a ‘leader conference’ in the UK (or an editorial board in the US), it is a place where everyone has a seat at the table. It’s where we get to hear what you think, drawn from your experience, energy and expertise. It’s where, together, we sift through what we know to come to a clear, concise point of view. It is the heart of what we do at Tortoise.


Drinks from 6.00pm, starts promptly at 6.30pm. If you are late to a ThinkIn you can ‘SlinkIn’!


If you would like to contribute to this ThinkIn, let us know by emailing thinkin@tortoisemedia.com


We film our Thinkins so we can watch them back, edit the best bits and share them with members who weren’t there in person.


Members can find their ThinkIn booking code in My Tortoise, under My Membership.
