IIC Annual General Meeting

From: Graham Voce <iic<-at->
Date: Wednesday, December 9, 2009
The 2010 Annual General Meeting of the International Institute for
Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works will be held in the
Hochhauser Auditorium in the Sackler Centre at the Victoria and
Albert Museum, South Kensington, London SW7, on Thursday 28 January
2010 at 5.30 pm.

After the formal business is concluded, at about 6.15 pm, the
meeting will be opened to the public and  a new type of event for
IIC will be held; Anna Somers Cocks, founder and Editorial Director
of the Art Newspaper, will interview  Samuel Jones, of the Demos
think-tank and co-author of the very influential publication "It's a
Material World: Caring for the Public Realm".  They will explore why
conservation should matter. Is there a crisis in Conservation?  Is
the profession losing support?  What can be done?  The event will
focus on how conservation can and should position itself as an
essential element for the health of all societies, worldwide.  Join
us for what promises to be a most thought-provoking evening.
