Dear Sir or Madam,

The “Upper Silesian Ethnographic Park in Chorzów” Museum and the Coal Mining Museum in Zabrze intend to organize another one-day conservation session devoted to maintenance, display, protection and storage of metal monuments on 8 December this year.

The direct inspiration for organizing the session is: maintenance of a litter box conducted by the Museum “Upper Silesian Ethnographic Park in Chorzów” and works by the Museum of Coal Mining. As the conservation sessions at MGPE have become a forum for exchange of views and experiences of professionals – conservators of museums and representatives of conservation services, we would like to cover a wide range of topics from maintenance theory through presentation of specific realizations to issues related to exposure. And storage of metal objects.

We invite you to participate in the planned conservation session. Our invitation is addressed especially to the representatives of conservationists of works of art, art historians, museums, archivists, librarians and conservationists.

In the program of the conference we anticipate occurrences of up to 20 minutes for lectures and up to 10 minutes for messages.

Those who are willing to participate actively in the session, please fill in the application form and send it by 31 October 2016 to:

Organizers reserve the right to choose from the submitted proposals. The decision will be made upon receipt of the application forms.
