IIC Student and Emerging Conservator Conference

From: Graham Voce <iic<-at->
Date: Tuesday, July 2, 2013
Thursday Friday 12-13 September 2013

IIC's second Student and Emerging Conservator Conference will be
held on 12-13 September 2013.  Following on from the successful 2011
London Student and Emerging Conservator Conference this new event
will focus on three areas

    National vs. international conservation work and conservation
    study and the language(s) used in conservation

    Presenting oneself to others

    Making the most of your skills and networking.

As with the London conference, this event will aim to offer an
international perspective and to facilitate communication between
student/emerging conservators on the one hand, and professionals
active in the field of conservation, in national institutions and
museums as well as in the private sector. The conference aims to
create a platform where the discussion of current needs in
conservation and the relationship between expectations and reality
can be discussed.

The themes discussed will be supported by organised visits to some
of central Copenhagen's major conservation studios, both at cultural
institutions and conservation businesses.

There will also be a chance to socialise at the evening reception on
the Thursday and lunch is included for the Friday.

The presentations will be held in the form of collaborative Web
Broadcasts, which will allow an international community of speakers
and participants to take join the conference, either in person or
online. There will also be dialogue between the speakers and the
audience, including those attending via the web.  Conservation
professionals active in the private sector as well as in
museums/institutions will discuss their experience and address the
concerns raised, will give their views on the future of the
profession, and the evolution of conservators' responsibilities.
Experienced conservators will address the issues of presentation
skills, portfolio creation and use and language skills, as well as
getting started in a career and the international aspects of
conservation work.

The conference will provide an excellent platform for the exchange
of ideas among those studying conservation, archaeology, art
history, heritage studies and related disciplines, people who are
soon to share the professional responsibility for a wide array of
heritage-related issues.

The conference has the support of the Schools of Architecture,
Design and Conservation School of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine
Arts, Copenhagen.
