Nigel elected Secretary General

We are pleased to share that Nigel has been elected Secretary General of the International Committee on Theory and Philosophy of Conservation and Restoration (TheoPhilos)! 

Since it was founded in 2005, TheoPhilos has provided a forum for developing the relationship of conservation theory to practice in dialogue with all parts of the conservation community.

At the 23rd TheoPhilos conference, held in Florence last week, a new bureau was elected (pictured with Giora Solar below).

The conference reflected on the 60th anniversary of the Venice Charter, which is recognised as the most important document for the protection and conservation of monuments. 

Thirty-five participants attended in person with around 200 more registered online from across the world – the global representation was fantastic! Several excellent papers were presented including Gilly Carr of University of Cambridge who spoke about the new Holocaust Memorial Safeguarding Centre.

Congratulations to Nigel, his involvement with ICOMOS and their international perspective brings a great deal to the conservation practice of Archangel and we look forward to continuing to share this with clients and colleagues.
