Readers may be interested in this programme on materials conservation in the tropics, happening in Bali in July. Deadline is 26 May 2023.
This year APTCCARN, Institut Konservasi and the Grimwade Centre for Cultural Materials Conservation will gather together to reconnect again and share creative conservation initiatives and ‘learned’ practices drawn from the tropics. From museums and memory sites in Bali, Indonesia, we will bring together conservation and heritage professionals from the Indo-Pacific region with practitioners in Indonesia- including professional heritage and museum workers, artists, makers, knowledge holders, collectors – to engage, exchange and create conservation initiatives.
Our face-to-face forum will centre on materiality and living heritage in the tropics – examining modes of making and documentation, place-based approaches to heritage and conservation, and the knowledge ecologies for conservation in the tropics. The three-day event aims to engender deep listening, sharing, and participation across 7 sites over 3 days.
APTCCARN6 is our sixth meeting with previous five meetings in Malaysia, Australia, Thailand, Taiwan and the Philippines.
APTCCARN6 celebrates the Grimwade Centre for Cultural Materials Conservation’s 20th Year Anniversary. The Grimwade Centre is a founding member of APTCCARN.
