What is the relation between social justice and cultural heritage?  As many Kingstonians know, cultural heritage is a fragile value, vulnerable to powerful economic interests.  Moreover, some people believe heritage is trivial, or conservative, or entails processes of ‘gentrification’ at odds with equality.  However, if equal human flourishing involves diverse sources of value and self-realisation, then heritage has an important role to play.
