“Reversing Colonization – One object at a time”
Colonization wiped out nations. Of their assets, their resources; but more importantly the continuity of their culture. As a new world order emerges, it becomes important for nations to claim what was theirs. Anuraag Saxena will discuss how nations have come together around the idea of sending history back to where it belongs; and our own evaluative-beliefs and lenses that prevent us from achieving our own potential… individually as people and collectively as a people.
