Annual conference of the Association of European Printing Museums
Topic: Safeguarding intangible heritage. Passing on printing techniques to future generations
The conference is being hosted by the Nationaal Museum van de Speelkaart (Turnhout, Belgium), a unique printing museum where skills, techniques and their transmission play a central role.
In addition to the usual talks, discussions and other convivialities, the conference programme will include visits to the Plantin-Moretus Museum in nearby Antwerp and the Industriemuseum (formerly MIAT) in Ghent which will open its new, considerably enlarged printing display shortly before the conference.
