This year the Latvian Society of Restorers will be marking its 30th anniversary. To celebrate this significant jubilee, we invite you to join us at the 30th Anniversary Conference of the Latvian Society of Restorers, which will take place on May 16-17, providing an insight into our history, today’s activities and future expectations.
From the original small founding member group of conservators, the society has evolved into a significant organization with a well-established role in preserving Latvia’s cultural heritage.
At the conference we will reflect on our achievements, seek further professional development sources in the conservation field, and will be gaining a perspective on future trends in preserving Latvia’s cultural heritage. During this 30 years period members of Latvian Society of Restorers have been cooperating with our colleagues in Lithuania and Estonia and had become aware of each country applying different approach of moving forward. Therefore, we will be delighted to look back to our common experience and history as well as to share future visions.
For those who are interested in the professional growth, the conference will provide an excellent opportunity to hear guest lectures on outstanding conservation projects of cultural heritage, engagement with the public, as well as requirements of academic education and opportunities of further professional development in conservation in the 21st century from international experts and representatives of Malta Heritage, the University of Gothenburg, the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and the International Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (IIC).
