Dear Sir / Madam,
ICCROM and INAH (Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia) are pleased to announce the 20th International Course on Stone Conservation – SC17 that will be held in Mexico City and Chicanná (Campeche), Mexico from 9 October to 8 December 2017.   The course announcement is included below.
The primary goal of the course is to improve the practice of stone conservation internationally by providing participants with a holistic understanding of the decay and deterioration of stone, disseminating effective conservation methodologies, and ensuring a practical understanding of appropriate repair methods and long-term management strategies.
We are interested in inviting applications from mid-career professionals and other decision makers in conservation, with at least five years of practical working experience in the field, from different disciplines (archaeologists, architects, conservator-restorers, conservation scientists, engineers and other professionals involved in stone conservation).
Thank you also for disseminating widely this information to the relevant networks.
Applications should reach ICCROM by 30 April 2017 to ensure inclusion in our selection process.
