IIC Nordic Group
Helsinki, Finland
21-23 October 2015

The Nordic Association of Conservators Finnish section has the
honour to invite you to the NKF XX Congress in Helsinki, Finland on
21-23 October 2015.

The theme of the congress is the preservation and conservation of
monumental cultural heritage objects.  A monumental object is a
notable building, space or entity comprising of its exterior,
interior and furnishings.  The entity could include layers and
details from different eras.  Monumental objects could also be a
prominent piece of art, textile or art collection.

Our goal at the congress is to present monumental restoration and
conservation projects that have been carried out in cooperation
between various people within the fields of conservation and
preservation of cultural heritage, construction representatives,
property and art owners and local authorities.  During the congress
we will become acquainted with on-going renovations projects in
Helsinki including the Presidential Palace, the Parliament Building
and the National Library of Finland.
