We are pleased to announce our upcoming collaboration with IIC and the Palace Museum in Beijing to host a 2½ days symposium in Hong Kong dedicated entirely to the topic of textiles conservation.

Besides conservation, the symposium will also address the artistic and historical aspects of textile artefacts ranging from thangkas, embroideries, archaeological textiles along the Silk Road, and royal and ethnic costumes across the East and West. 18 distinguished textile specialists and scholars from across the world will present case studies and latest research findings on the subjects. Please see our event webpage for more information: http://www.lcsd.gov.hk/CE/Museum/Conservation/en_US/web/co/iic-pm-2017_h...

Accompanying the technical session include social events giving delegates a chance to establish professional network and to explore some heritage attractions around Hong Kong. Registration will start in the second quarter of 2017 – Join us in Hong Kong to catch up with your colleagues and make new connections!
Stay tuned!
