Clothing the Pandemic, Workshop Part I Conference

June 23 & 24. Register now !

Clothing the Pandemic’ Workshop aims to offer a place for sharing experience and knowledge. It will help to connect people and institutions (international curators and conservators, historians, museums, and the global public) at a time when we are all physically distant from one another.

The workshop is seeking to understand how to document the Material Culture of the Pandemic; to develop Strategies and to face Challenges.

It will unfold in 2 parts: Part I “Collecting, Researching, Documenting, Displaying” in Spring 2021, Part II “Conservation, Preservation” in Fall 2021.

Free online events upon registration only.
