‘The Museum of the Thai Street’.

National Museum Volunteers Lecture Programme

National Museum, Bangkok

Philip speaks at the NMV’s annual lecture series for the second year in a row, and the third time in total. This year’s talk will question the notion of what counts s cultural heritage and patrimony that qualifies for preserving and showcasing in museums, but looking at the overlooked objects of popular culture, which are starting to become exhibits in progressive museums that take a broader definition of Thai heritage.
