Alan Paton Centre, Pietermaritzburg
The ETHER Initiative has collaborated with Dr Estelle Liebenberg-Barkhuizen of the Alan Paton Centre to bring to you an exciting workshops on Photograph and film preservation. This workshop, which is created and presented by Estelle, is a one-day intensive and insightful course that deals with all the theory, methods and practices you need when dealing with the preservation of photographs and film. You will learn all the reasons why photographs and film deteriorate and fade, and what are the best ways to prevent this. This includes policies, risk and security, storage and the ideal atmosphere, as well as handling techniques and digitisation.
If there is demand, we will run two complimentary ETHER workshops before the preservation workshop:
Collection Storage Management (2 October)
Project Management for Heritage Projects (1 October)
