MEE THE EPERTSS
Walled City of Lahore Authority brings an interesting interactive session for the professionals and students.
“Meet the Expert in Conservation Conversation”
The first session is about one of the key projects of Walled City of Lahore Authority “The conservation of Royal Kitchen inside Lahore Fort”.
This place was a no go area since independence, with waist high shrubs and the structure collapsing. WCLA in 2016 took up the conservation of this majestic site and started the documentation followed by the conservation. The teams of AKTC and WCLA have worked on this uphill task of conserving this Shah Jahan’s era landmark inside the Lahore Fort. The conservation of the site is near completion and will be opened for the tourists in April 2018. Taking this as an opportunity for selected faculties, WCLA has launched a fortnightly academic session ‘Meet the Expert’. In this session the experts of Archeology, Conservation, History and other faculties will meet the students and show them the on ground works along with a briefing and Q&A session. The session will provide a platform for informal dialogue and discussion between experts and aspiring professionals. During these sessions subject matter experts will present their views, research techniques and accomplishments in a personal context that will offer participants a behind the scenes look at factors influencing their work. The participants will be able to have first-hand knowledge of this site, history and conservation.
