Goppion at the ICOM-CC’s 17th Triennial Conference in Melbourne
15 Sept 2014
Goppion is pleased to announce its participation in the ICOM-CC’s 17th Triennial Conference in Melbourne (http://www.icom-cc2014.org) from September 15 to 19, 2014.
The Conference theme is Building Strong Culture through Conservation and will focus on how conservation can help build strong culture for the benefit of society. By preserving cultural materials essential to the continuation of collective memory, conservation can help rebuild communities which have been damaged through war, natural disaster, or displacement, as well as supporting a sense of identity within thriving communities. The conference will explore how cross-cultural partnerships, new technologies, knowledge transmission, effective advocacy, and local cultural centres can contribute to the building of strong culture through conservation. Further, the conference will investigate strategies to address conservation needs in post-trauma recovery, regional communities, and communities whose identity is not dominant within a broader culture.
The Conference – which offers technical sessions of the specialist Working Groups, keynote speeches, behind the scenes visits to local conservation laboratories and sites of historic interest and other cultural and social events – will be attended by leading international keynote speakers and up to 800 delegates, including conservators, scientists, historians and art historians, curators, librarians, archivists, students, collection managers and directors from the world’s leading cultural institutions and the private sector.
Our technicians in the Goppion stand will present the company’s latest achievements characterized by significant studies and innovations in the field of preventive conservation, especially in terms of climate control and low-emission materials from which the cases are made.
