Icon Conference 2013: Positive Futures in an Uncertain World

Icon’s second triennial conference will inspire conservation professionals and all those working in the increasingly challenging and uncertain circumstances of today’s heritage sector. We will aspire to build Positive Futures for the cultural heritage and the profession. In spite of funding cuts and staff losses, conservators are working with others to find new ways to care for and connect with our cultural heritage. The conference will explore and debate how we can develop our capacity to respond in uncertain times.
