12th North American Textile Conservation Conference

From: Monday 23.09.19
at 9:00am
To: Friday 27.09.19
at 5:00pm

Ottawa-Gatineau, Canada



Event type: 

The twelfth biennial North American Textile Conservation Conference (NATCC) will be held in Ottawa-Gatineau, and will focus on the theme of “Lessons Learned – Textile Conservation – Then and Now".

Event description: 

The choice of the topic was inspired by NATCC’s return to the City of Ottawa, venue of our first conference in 1997. Analytical studies, conservation protocols, treatments, exhibition displays, and materials and techniques have evolved during the past 20+ years, often dramatically. We propose to revisit conservation procedures, best practices, collaborations, and other preservation guidelines carried out during the 1980s through the present.
