Conservation Clinic was in service again this year. The 10-day splendid programme, including the return of three conservation specialties "Chinese Painting and calligraphy", "Photograph" and "Archival Document", and the first added "Textile" and "Metals", was well received by the public. To echo with the amusing theme of Muse Fest HK "See More", two sessions of thematic talk featuring interesting conservation topics of each specialty were specially arranged for each clinic day. They attracted high audience attendance and promoted the awareness of conservation. Conservation Clinic this year certainly brought the public to "See More" with delight of conservation service in museums. It made conservation accessible to all. Check out the following video for the snapshots.
