Conference „The Conservator’s Reflection“
12. September - 14. September
The fifth IIC Student & Emerging Conservator Conference will be held at the Cologne Institute of Conservation Sciences (CICS) from the 12th–14th of September 2019. The conference aims at providing a meeting platform for conservation students and recent graduates to discuss their professional goals, needs and expectations, and to connect internationally.
The conference will have the same format as the last four successful IIC-SEC Conferences in London (2011), Copenhagen (2011), Warsaw (2015) and Bern (2017). Panel discussions, studio visits and social events will offer invaluable networking opportunities. The format further allows the next generation of conservation professionals to gain valuable information and advice from our invited speakers who have already walked that path.
The conference’s title is “The Conservator’s Reflection”. This title is meant to be ambiguous – How do we see ourselves as conservation professionals? Also, however, how are we seen by others, both by colleagues in institutions and by the general public? In addition to the sessions, the participants will be able to visit the workrooms of the Cologne Institute for Conservation Sciences and enjoy guided tours at some of Cologne’s finest museums and historic sites.
