UK – Conservation Strategies for Church Buildings

The third Church Buildings Council International Symposium will explore the latest conservation strategies for the management and development of churches and their collections. Partnerships and multi-disciplinary approaches play a key role in protecting these unique treasures and ensuring they remain open to a wide audience. The Symposium will explore the conservation of the East Anglia Rood Screens (the largest collection of medieval paintings in Europe), as well as current projects in Naumburg, Cologne, Flanders and Mount Sinai. There will be a unique opportunity to visit the triforium at Westminster Abbey to learn about the development of a new museum space. The Symposium is for those caring for church buildings, to share best practice, ideas and common challenges.

Date: 31 October 2013
Venue: Cheyneygates, Westminster Abbey, London
