international workshop

Connecting Collections

13 September to 15 September 2021


A three-day international workshop addressing the preservation, access and use of cultural heritage material samples archives, will be held at Évora, Portugal, from 13 September to 15 September 2021. The workshop will be organized by ICCROM, University of Évora and other partners.

The purpose of the workshop is to highlight the value and vulnerability of these collections, and seek concrete ways in which to safeguard and share the knowledge they contain. ICCROM is launching a call for partner institutions who are interested to join this initiative and contribute towards the shaping and organisation of this event.


ICCROM asks your help.
If you or your organisation have a heritage sample collection we would like to hear from you.
