A reminder that booking for this year’s Icon stained-glass group AGM and conference is now open, and that proposals for papers are still being accepted. The theme of the conference is ‘Disaster! Management, Recovery, Reconstruction, Opportunities’, and there will be papers, an opportunity to visit the Canterbury conservation studio, and site visits to view glass by Marc Chagall and Charles Marq, as well as by the eighteenth-century glass-painter William Price the Younger. Full details were published in last month’s Vidimus.
Tickets are available through Eventbrite, and preferential accommodation rates are available from Cathedral Lodge, within the cathedral precincts, by calling +441227 866210 (from outside the UK) or 01277 866210 (from inside the UK).
Five student bursaries are available to cover the full cost of a student ticket (including the Saturday coach tour). These are open to current students and individuals undertaking relevant unpaid work experience. Please email Katie Harrison, detailing how you would benefit from attending and including contact details for a referee, and (where applicable) your institution, course and year of study. The deadline for applications is 14 August 2016.
Students are invited to submit titles for our first Student & Emerging Professional Poster Competition. Entries will be on display throughout the first two days of the event. Posters will be judged by delegates, and three cash prizes will be awarded. Posters may be on a current project or case study, or on the conference theme, and will be judged on effective communication and the visual impact. If you would like to submit a poster, please email Katie Harrison, including your name, title and brief outline (max. 200 words) of your poster), and your institution. The deadline for submissions is 31 July 2016.
