AHFAP International Conference for photographers in cultural heritage

International Conference for photographers in the Cultural Heritage Sector
14th, 15th, 16th June 2011, Hilton Metropole hotel, Brighton, East Sussex, United Kingdom
AHFAP was founded just over 25 years ago and in that time has existed as a forum for UK photographers working in museums, galleries, libraries and other fields in the cultural heritage sector. Very few of our colleagues in other parts of the world have an association which brings such a group of photographers together. It is with this in mind that AHFAP have decided to extend a welcome to photographers from all over the world, who work in our sector, to join in a conference to discuss cultural heritage photography. This international conference will be held in Brighton, on the south coast of England in June 2011.
For details of how to book a place and accommodation at the conference go to our Conference Booking page and Accommodation page. All other Conference information can be found in this section of the website, see the 2011 International Conference menu above.
The AHFAP journal is our occasional publication intended to inform and educate our fellow colleagues, it is available for download on our Journals page.
