13th North American Textile Conservation Conference: 'Outside Influences'

The thirteenth biennial North American Textile Conservation Conference (NATCC) will be virtual due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and its economic fallout. The theme of 'Outside Influences' seems to be particularly prescient given the events of the last 18 months and serves as a reminder that in today's interconnected society few things happen in isolation. Our work as conservators is subject to myriad outside influences, macro to micro. Subjects to be explored include politics, geography, training, workplace pressures and ethics.
