The AICCM Book & Paper SIG warmly invite you to join us in conversation with Debra Hess Norris, Professor of the Art Conservation Department at the University of Delaware (Winterthur). Debra will share her experiences on the Preservation of Photographic Heritage, on why photographs are loved, on why they are important, and why we must advocate to preserve them.
Delving into the significance of advocacy and the importance of engaging communities, Debra will showcase how far the conservation profession has come to and where it needs to go now. The talk will be followed by a Q&A session. Please join us for what promises to be an exciting, informative and inspiring event!
