Call for Papers

The Icon Ethnography Group and Collections Care Group are delighted to call for presentations for a one-day symposium on storage moves and store-based projects.

The event will take place on Saturday 23 November 2019, at the Science Museum, London.

Event description: 

Over the past few years, a number of UK-based museum organisations have embarked on storage moves and associated projects, alongside which the interests and appetite for knowledge exchange on the subject has seen an increase among our membership.

We would like to invite you to share your knowledge, experience and learning from your project at this symposium.

Your presentation could be an outline of your move project and its programme overall, a case study of a specific task, or reflection on a conservator's role in the storage move.

Each presentation will be 20 minutes in length, delivered with a Power Point.

If you are interested in presenting at the symposium, please send a short abstract (250 words max.), short bio(s) of the author(s) and your professional affiliation(s) to by 15th September 2019. 

We look forward to hearing from you.
