 The Future Monument 

Image1

Description

The Shrine was created to ensure that the sacrifices of Victorians during the First World War would never be lost on future generations. It has also served as a place of public and private remembrance for all conflicts since, and provides a space to analyse the events, motivations and consequences of conflict. It encourages us to look forward, but does a better understanding of the mistakes of our past encourage us to build a peaceful future?

The Shrine has taken some exciting steps in recent years to highlight efforts to eliminate world conflict and aid those touched by war, including the development of a dedicated Peace Gallery. But can war memorials play a larger role in fostering reconciliation?

Join a panel comprising a young veteran, an academic, a peace theorist and a curator to explore these questions.

Panellists:
- Sergeant David Robertson, recipient of the Medal for Gallantry
- Dr Steven Cooke
- Steve Killilea
- Jean McAuslan
