Photo Conservation: Round Table Discussion

Friday, 17 November, 2017 - 12:30

The Icon Photographic Materials Group is running an event on Friday 17th November to share knowledge on the conservation of photographs and film. Following on from the successful Icon Scotland news and ideas exchange, the PhMG are looking for 16 conservators or conservation scientists willing to share their experiences. You may be working in an institution, as a private conservator or as a student. We'd like to hear about your solutions, but also your dilemmas over photographic materials both traditional and modern: treatments, preventive measures, scientific investigation and routes into photograph conservation. The aim of the meeting is to build a comfortable
space to discuss on-going projects.

If you're willing to give a five minute talk, send a titled proposal (c.100 words) with your name and affiliation by Monday 23rd October. Invited speakers will need to prepare approximately five PowerPoint slides, though these should be illustrative rather than textual. If you'd like any further details or to discuss your idea please get in touch (email as soon as possible. We look forward to hearing from you.

*You do not need to give a presentation to attend.*
