Black Lives Matter: Documenting and conserving Bristol’s history as it happens
Care of Collections
To: Wednesday 19.08.20
Join the ICON Care of Collection group for a webinar from Fran Coles, Conservation and Documentation Manager for Bristol Culture.
The Black Lives Matter protests were a significant moment and reached their climax with the toppling of the Edward Colston statue. It marked a moment in Bristol’s history as a city. During this talk Coles will focus on the practical aspects of documenting and treating objects from the protest during lockdown including how the team worked to preserve objects with limited access to equipment and materials. Coles will also touch on the challenges and opportunities that have arisen from working on the project.
There will be a chance to contribute and raise your own questions. This is an event not to be missed.
An online discussion via Zoom.
