Icon Painting Group Talk: ‘H. Holbeen inventit’: Holbein’s Legacy in England

- The Conservator with more than five years’ experience: specifically, how can networking make a difference for younger professionals (under 35) and what national / local legal barriers have been encountered by them?

Archives and Records Association Annual Conference Dublin 2015

The ARA annual conference is the only multi-day event that deals specifically with the conservation and preservation of archives and remains a very significant event in the conservator's calendar. The title this year, "Challenges, obligations or imperatives?" is sufficiently broad to encompass the wide range of topics that are current in the conservation world today. There is such a variety that it is a challenge to know where to begin to tell of the wonders that await.
