Reading 2050: Transforming the MERL

25 October, 2018 at 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Transforming the Museum of English Rural Life: Past, Present and Future 

Please join Kate Arnold-Foster  for a lecture: ‘Transforming the Museum of English Rural Life: Past, Present and Future’

The lecture is part of the ‘People and Lifestyle’ theme of the Reading 2050 lecture series, which provide a platform to discuss how Reading should evolve into a smarter and more sustainable city by 2050 (www.reading2050.co.uk )

Admission to the lecture is free.

The SBE, Barton Wilmore and Reading UK, established the Reading 2050 group in 2013. The Reading 2050 lecture series is structured around three themes, which underpin the Reading 2050 vision:

*Place and Environment
*People and Lifestyle
*Economy and Employment

In 2017, the School brought together expert speakers to discuss Reading’s heritage and history, the future of its transport and energy and the impact of climate change and floods. A discussion on Reading’s Art and Culture was facilitated earlier this year, and there are other Reading 2050 events planned for 2018 and 2019.
