The upcoming IIC Students & Emerging Conservators Conference which will take place the 12thand 13th of October at the University of the Arts in Bern (Switzerland).
This will be the 4th iteration of this conference series, which is addressed to and organized by students of conservation and restoration. The conference, titled “Head, Hands & Heart”, is divided into three sessions which refer to the diverse skills and knowledge of a professional conservator. We use our heads for scientific research, our hands to restore art and cultural heritage and our hearts to communicate our intentions with passion.
One idea of the IIC Students and Emerging Conservators Conferences is to allow the participation of as many students as possible. Therefore, we try to spread this message all over the world and write to universities, schools and academies encompassing Australia, Asia, Europe, Africa and the Americas. We are also going to set up a livestream and include questions coming from students watching the discussion online.
