IIC Student & Emerging Conservators Conference 2017 – HKB Bern “Head, Hands and Heart”

The title of the 2017 conference is inspired by the Swiss educational philosopher Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi, whose credo of 'Learning with Head, Heart and Hand's' is also very applicable to the conservation profession.
