NCPC Conference 2022 A Potluck of Preservation Topics November 4, 2022 McKimmon Center, Raleigh 9:00-4:00 PM
Bringing preservation professionals together to share ideas is one of the hallmarks of the annual NCPC conference. Each year we look forward to welcoming many voices to the table to celebrate preservation efforts across the state and to learn from one another. This year’s conference, the first in-person gathering in three years, takes as its theme a metaphorical potluck. Recognizing that there are a wide variety of projects, interests, and challenges in the field, NCPC invites proposals on any topic that the preservation community feels is important. We are embracing a broad theme and keeping an open mind to find out what’s cooking in cultural heritage.
“Battling the Bloom: Mold Protections for Collections”
November 13, 2017 McKimmon Center
North Carolina State University Raleigh, NC
North Carolina Preservation Consortium’s 2017 annual conference will address preventing, identifying, and remediating mold in archival and object collections. Experts from the fields of conservation, preservation, and industrial hygiene will help participants learn about the risks mold poses for buildings, artifacts, and collections stewards.
The headline speaker for this day-long event will be Susan Duhl, a Baltimore-based conservator with expertise in paper collections and broad knowledge of disaster recovery and collections management. In addition, Dr. Wayne Thomann of Duke University will shed light on mold’s risks to human health. North Carolina conservators will add in-depth discussions on paintings and objects, and discuss mold mitigation in historic buildings.
