In Conversation with Luis Monreal, General Manager of the Aga Khan Trust for Culture

“Culture is the soul of our body. It is the software that makes us rational, that gives us an identity, that makes us have feelings. In development, culture is this essential ingredient that allows people to feel that they belong to a community, that allows people to understand that there are other communities that should be respected.”

Luis’s journey ranges from Egyptian archaeology to mediaeval art curation. He founded the Getty Conservation Institute and served on the Master Jury of the Aga Khan Award for Architecture before taking on his current role in 2001.
