How cities and places should deal with guilt due to past actions is a debate around the world: from how European cities mark the Holocaust to the removal of Confederate monuments in the US. It’s a big debate in Bristol, too, with the renaming of Colston Hall making national headlines. The panelists consider how cities can address their difficult pasts and, more importantly, how to ensure these debates and actions create healing and better futures for all.
