I have applied several times to this course in Mexico which is the Latin version of the course that is taught directly in Japan, And it's the first time they accept me. The international course is designed for a maximum of 9 participants working in Latin America and the Caribbean, So I feel very privileged to have been accepted.
I want to go to learn the Japanese paper conservation tradition, which has expanded among the community of curators of graphic and documentary goods in Latin America, including Portugal and Spain, because it is very important to have a good understanding of the materials, the tools, and the correct application of Japanese paper conservation techniques, before attempting to carry them out in the conservation of collections of graphic and documentary goods in Latin America, and also be able to adapt to the Latin American context.
For the seventh year, the CNCPC-INAH, The National Research Institute of Japan and the ICCROM have partnered to offer the “International Paper Conservation Course in Latin America. An encounter with the East, ”with the generous contribution of INAH and the Japanese National Research Institute for Cultural Properties in Tokyo, Japan.
The funds that I require are to buy the ticket and my support during the 15 days of the course (30 Oct-13 Nov 2019), please help, so I can travel, Acquire knowledge and subsequently disseminate.
I would be happy if you could use the [Help by sharing] button to share about my project!
