Conferences, symposia and seminars
The Centre for Cultural Materials Conservation enjoys an active and vibrant research environment and supports a number of conferences, symposia and regular seminar series.
After surviving the devastating flood in March 2011 and after spending more than two years away from home being conserved at the Centre for Cultural Materials Conservation, the Warmun Community Art Collection is returning home.
A symposium at the University of Melbourne will celebrate the project to conserve the collection. Gija artists including Patrick Mung Mung, Churchill Cann, Betty Carrington, Shirley Purdie, Mark Nodea, Roseleen Park and Sadie Carrington, will talk about Warmun art and scholars from the University will talk about the conservation of the works, and current scholarship at the University on Warmun art. This will include a special viewing of selected works before they return to Warmun.
When: Saturday, 18 May 2013, 2.00pm to 4.00pm
