IHBC 2018 School
The Institute of Historic Building Conservation (IHBC) is the professional body for building conservation practitioners and historic environment experts working in the United Kingdom. IHBC's 2018 conference and 'School' will take place in Belfast from 21-23 June and will focus on the subject of 'Our Shared heritage: Communication - Negotiation - Transformation'.
It is part of the European Year of Cultural Heritage and will offer local and global takes on communication and negotiation strategies that can generate transformative responses to heritage challenges.
IHBC Northern Ireland Branch Chair and lead organiser Andrew McClelland said; “The School’s keynote speakers represent the blend of local and international content that will pervade the programme, and with the new pages on School speakers and early links to topic areas, delegates now have plenty of detail to see its specific CPD benefits, and shape their arrangements accordingly.”
James Caird, IHBC Chair, said: “I’ve been lucky enough to be able to attend the Annual School every year for over a decade. They are a really good way of keeping up-to-date on all the latest in conservation and professional practice as well as an opportunity to keep up with old friends and colleagues and forge new professional networks.”
