ICOM CC Iran is working on the first Conservation and Restoration Encyclopaedia in Iran

Based on a proposal by Dr. Rasool Vatandoust and under his supervision work on preparation of the first encyclopaedia on the Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Properties in Iran has just begun. In order to achieve this goal a guideline has been prepared and already a number of scholars are actively working on the project.

The work of the Encyclopaedia is divided according to mandates of ICOM CC Iran’s Working Groups, which are: Conservation of Manuscripts and Archives; Education and Preventive Conservation; Conservation of Painting; Documentation; Conservation of Architectural Decorations; Conservation of Archaeological Finds; Conservation of Stone and Rock Arts; Earthen Architecture Building Materials and Traditional Methods; Conservation of Modern Materials and Contemporary Art; History and Theoretical Principles of Conservation and Restoration; Conservation of Carpet and Textiles; and Conservation of Metal and Enamel.

ICOM CC Iran invites all the scholars and enthusiasts from all over the country to join us in implementation of this national project. Those interested could contact the ICOM CC Iran Secretariat for further information.
