The countdown is over, and the IIC 2017 Student and Emerging Conservator Conference begins tomorrow morning!
We are very much looking forward to all the studio visits and presentations tomorrow and on Friday. And of course we are excited to broadcasting the conference online!
The conference will provide an excellent platform for the exchange of ideas among those studying conservation-restoration, archaeology, art history, heritage studies and related disciplines, people who are soon to share professional responsibilities for a wide array of heritage-related issues.
