AROUND THE WORLD IN 30 SECONDS
Opening up the Zoom chat propelled this year’s IIC Congress Student Meeting into action. With a simple click, Amber Kerr, Meaghan Monaghan and Alexandra Taylor welcomed 46 participants into the fray... and it was quickly established that convening online for just such a meet-and-greet made the world that much smaller.
The Foundation for Advancement in Conservation (FAIC) is now accepting proposals for the upcoming Photomechanical Prints: History, Technology, Aesthetics, and Use symposium taking place at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, October 31-November 2, 2023.
The deadline for submissions has been extended until Friday, November 18, 2022. Proposals are welcome across disciplines and a broad range of subjects that reflect the diversity of the field.

Tune into any episode of the ECPodcast and you will hear, “This is the ECPodcast: by and for emerging conservation professionals,” playing over a catchy piano jingle. The podcast was started a little over two years ago by Liz Hébert, a masters student studying paintings conservation at the University of Amsterdam. Episodes have covered a range of topics that pertain to ECPs (emerging conservation professionals), from writing a thesis to working a second job. Read on to learn about what it takes to put a podcast together, and what’s coming up next in Season 2.
Alongside COP27 Egypt and continuing the great success of last year, IIC is organising another 24-hour global edit-a-thon, 16 - 17 November 2022, to edit and create content for the world's largest encyclopedia, Wikipedia, focused on Cultural Heritage Conservation Sustainability.
