40th Anniversary

The Gerry Hedley Student Symposium - 40th Anniversary


The Gerry Hedley Symposium is an annual student-run conference, where postgraduate students and interns from three of the UK’s conservation courses, The Hamilton Kerr Institute, Northumbria University and The Courtauld Institute of Art, have the opportunity to present research that has the potential to make a positive impact on the future of art conservation.   

This annual one-day symposium is named after its founder, Gerry Hedley, who was a Reader at The Courtauld Institute of Art and a leader of pioneering research in conservation, inspiring generations of students. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the conference, and the slow return to normality after the pandemic, we are excited to announce this year’s event will be hosted in person by Northumbria University. 

Speakers will present on a range of topics, featuring individual treatments, technical study and scientific analysis of paintings and artworks. Presentations will feature case studies of artworks from world-class collections with in-depth technical and scientific analysis.  This year the topics of the presentations range far and wide, from the conservation of blood on paper, to butterfly wing scales in the paintings of Van Schrieck, to materials for retouching acrylic dispersion paintings, reflecting the diverse interests of the students and interns. 

Date - Thursday 30th June

Location – Northumbria University City Campus - Ellison Building, Conference Room 2
