Connect and inspire African youth with the possibilities of their rich heritage. Use digital technologies, including social media, to promote heritage awareness and support creative industries. Engage heritage as an economic asset to address poverty and unemployment among young people. These are just some of the potential directions discussed during ICCROM’s Africa Expert Meeting for Cultural Heritage Conservation, held at the Egyptian Academy in Rome from 9-11 January 2019.

In April of this year, over 160 people travelled to Los Angeles to attend the 45th annual meeting of the Association of North American Graduate Programs in Conservation of Cultural Property (ANAGPIC). Students, faculty, and staff of the UCLA/Getty Interdepartmental Program in the Conservation of Archaeological and Ethnographic Materials had the pleasure of not only attending the three-day conference, but hosting it as well.

Yep, it’s that time of year again! The 18th of May saw celebrations of ICOM International Museum Day from all around the world. This year’s theme was “Museums as Cultural Hubs: The future of tradition.” Here at IIC we collected stories of museum celebrations all the way from South Africa to Siberia. Read more about how these museums are promoting local culture, finding new ways to interact with their communities, and forging new traditions.
