The Icelandic section of the Nordic Association of Conservators is pleased to announce the XXI NKF Congress - Cultural heritage facing catastrophe: prevention and recoveries to be held in Reykjavik, Iceland 26 - 28 September 2018. The programme is now available at www.nkf2018.is

Early bird registration closes on June 26th. The number of participants is limited, don’t miss the unique opportunity. Please make your arrangements soon.

The theme of the congress is the impact of natural and man-made catastrophes on cultural heritage and recoveries.

During the last few years, many of us have experienced disasters such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, floods, building explosion and fires, which have had a serious impact on our cultural heritage. An awakening has taken place in the preventative actions illustrated by the amount of professional documentation on the internet. The congress will be an opportunity to share knowledge and experiences and/to improve the protection of the cultural heritage.

This congress is meant for conservators, curators, and all professionals working with the preservation of cultural heritages.

The program for the XXI NKF Congress will consist of lectures and will be divided into three main topics:
* Preventives measures; Risk assessments and technical solutions
* Case studies of catastrophes and emergency responses
* Long term recovery.
