Event description: 

The Icon Photographic Materials Group is running an event on Friday 17th November to share knowledge on the conservation of photographs and film.  Following on from the successful Icon Scotland news and ideas exchange, the PhMG are looking for 16 conservators or conservation scientists willing to share their experiences. You may be working in an institution, as a private conservator or as a student. We’d like to hear about your solutions, but also your dilemmas over photographic materials both traditional and modern: treatments, preventive measures, scientific investigation and routes into photograph conservation. The aim of the meeting is to build a comfortable space to discuss on-going projects.

The main event will take place from 12.30 (for a 13:00 start) -16:00. Tea, coffee, soft drinks, cakes and fruit will be provided. This will be followed by a short annual general meeting and a visit to Illuminating India: Photography 1857-2017 from 16:00-18:00.

The annual general meeting and the exhibition are free.

Thank you to the Science Museum London for hosting the event.
