Melbourne Special Events for Culture and Heritage
September 12-14 2014

We are happy to announce the launch of Melbourne Special Events for
Culture and Heritage, a series of events from practical, workshops,
tours to panel discussions.

These events are organised September 12-14, 2014, taking advantage
of people being in Melbourne at the same time prior to the ICOM-CC
17th Triennial Conference 2014 Melbourne and is jointly organised by
the Centre for Cultural Materials Conservation at the University of
Melbourne and the Australian Institute for the Conservation of
Cultural Materials (AICCM). These workshops expand on the conference
theme of "Building strong culture through conservation" that
celebrates the preservation of culture as a powerful and positive
force in strengthening society, enhancing people's sense of
identity, and making a difference to people's lives.

We support broad participation from anyone in the culture and
heritage industry, interested members from the local community and
visitors to Melbourne attending the ICOM-CC Triennial Conference.

interest and these workshops provide a unique opportunity for very
real engagement in this issue.
