Subject: Textile Conservation Centre closure

Textile Conservation Centre closure

From: Hans-Christoph von Imhoff <xoph.von.imhoff>
Date: Friday, December 7, 2007
I have added some arguments to the blog on TTC. But I think ICOM-CC
should, and in a very official way, also be informed, probably by
IIC, as well as ICOM, the mother organization, IIC national
committees, the national conservation organisations, perhaps also
ICCROM and certainly Getty, to try to have them throw their
reputation into the UK balance to get the decision reversed. To me
what is happening there is terribly serious and not only for UK
textile and international conservation, but for us all and all the
efforts to preserve our heritage where ever and in what ever
speciality. Give it a push
