Parthenon Project – Reunifying the Parthenon Sculptures in Their Home in Athens


Client: Parthenon Project

A collection of the Parthenon Sculptures was brought to the UK between 1801 and 1812 by Lord Elgin and is now housed in the British Museum in London. Since the early 1980s, when the first formal request was made for the permanent return to Greece of the Sculptures, there has been a public debate about where they rightly belong – and significant stalemate.

Pagefield was hired to develop a campaign aimed at making the case to reunify the Parthenon Sculptures (often known as the ‘Elgin Marbles’) currently housed in the British Museum, in their home in Athens, building fresh momentum and winning new supporters in the UK.
