An afternoon of knowledge sharing, networking and discussions about issues on the preservation and conservation of our photographic heritage.

Event description: 

The Icon Photographic Materials Group is delighted to announce the third photo conservation round table, taking place on Friday 29th November at the Science Museum in London. The event will consist of five-minute presentations and discussion, and aims to promote collaboration and knowledge sharing among conservators, as well as other professionals interested in the care and preservation of photographic materials.

We invite speakers from public institutions, private practice and education to talk about their work, and the issues and challenges involved in caring for historic and modern photographic materials. Subjects could include (but are not limited to) treatment practices, preventive conservation, scientific research, education, outreach and funding. Our aim is to build a comfortable space for discussion and to broaden our network by learning about others’ work.

If you’d like to give a five-minute presentation, please send a titled proposal (c.100 words) with your name and affiliation to by 10th November. Presentations should include around five PowerPoint slides, which should be illustrative rather than textual. Please get in touch as soon as possible for further details or to discuss your idea. We look forward to hearing from you!

The event will take place between 13:00 and 17:00. Different ticket prices will apply to presenters, Icon members and non-Icon members. Tea, coffee, and biscuits will be provided. The round table event will be followed by the Icon PhMG annual general meeting, which is free to attend.

A final version of the programme will be available by mid-November, but you can check our Eventbrite page for updates before then. Thank you to the Science Museum London for hosting the event.
