Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Conference: Safeguarding Image Collections - 31 October 2013

On October 31 2013 IRPA-KIK organises a conference on management and conservation of photographic collections. Many institutions (museums, libraries, archives, etc.) that have photographic collections are facing problems concerning their management: storage, inventory, digitalization, access, copyright issues, status and value attached to the collection 

The conference offers professionals who are confronted with these problems an occasion to develop a practical and ethical framework for the conservation of photographic collections.

If you would like to present a paper on one of the diverse topics concerning this theme, you can send your proposal to IRPA-KIK before March 31 2013.

Main colloquium topics

  • Collections care and management
    • (Preventive) conservation
    • Risk management
    • Storage for photographic collections
  • Access
    • Copyright
    • Digitization
    • Exhibition
  • The status of the image
  • Advocacy


The principal language of the conference will be English, but papers in French will also be welcome.
