Dr Tristram Hunt, director of the V&A, will discuss how the museum’s founding commitment to design, education and industry continues to define it today. Tracing the museum’s genesis from its Victorian roots, he considers how the V&A’s civic foundations – the national and the global – engendered a world-class collection. Dr Hunt uses this cultural lens to consider the museum’s place in the world today.
