The third IIC Student & Emerging Conservator Conference was held in Warsaw on 15th & 16th October 2015, in partnership with the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw.
Building on the success of the 2013 Copenhagen and 2011 London Student & Emerging Conservator Conferences, the conference’s aim was to offer an international perspective - and to facilitate communication - between student/emerging conservators and professionals active in the field of conservation, in national institutions and museums as well as in the private sector. One of our main objectives was to create a platform where the discussion of current needs in conservation and the relationship between expectations and reality could be addressed.
Presentations were held at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw and were available in the form of live web-streamed broadcasts, allowing an international community of speakers and participants to take part in the conference either in person or online, submitting questions during the event via Twitter or the event’s Facebook page, which has become a fantastic record of the event: https://www.facebook.com/events/939421442767202/1005698016139544/
