The ICON Ethnography Group wishes to invite all ICON Positive
Futures 2013 attendees to our afternoon session on Thursday 11 April
2013.

We have six fascinating talks that link together the conservation of
Ethnography and Natural History collections. In using the similarity
of materials as a starting point, the session will touch on a range
of collections care issues and treatment strategies across the two
specialisms.
