Join us at online forum #6 POLLUTANTS of our 10 AGENTS OVER 10 MONTHS series with guest speakers David Thickett, Jean Tétreault and Lisa Addison.

Pollutant is a mysterious agent. It is infiltrating your museum from the outside, but can surprise you by been in your display case or even been released by your loved objects. It shows up as old known problem but can hit on the back of your ego with unexpected damages on objects while you have done everything to prevent it. Three speakers from different time zones will talk about their experiences on pollutant control and monitoring followed by a Q&A session.

Tuesday 31 August 2021 (Note: this seminar is held on a Tuesday not a Thursday as for the previous seminars), 7pm-9pm, Australian Eastern Standard Time
