Hello to all colleagues, who are colour curious and would like to meet for a one day ‘unconference’ in Cambridge on the 19th June to discuss colour calibration, colour standards and industry practices. The aim is to share knowledge with others and to learn from each other.
We believe that the exchange of knowledge between group members will create greater awareness of the issues under discussion and help to develop a more consistent approach to colour management in the Cultural Heritage community. This ‘unconference’ is a good platform for research into best practices.
On Monday 18th, we will organise some kind of social gathering if there are enough people who are coming early (TBC).
The morning of Tuesday 19th will focus on lightning talks and discussions. Short, up to five-minute, presentations from some participants will stimulate the sharing of experience and identify the hot topics of colour management. These will be summarised and discussed further during the day.
In the afternoon we want to organise at least two parallel workshops on a practical approach to colour management. There will be an opportunity for more experienced members of the AHFAP community to share their practical knowledge. Emphasis will be on hands-on experience. The range of topics will cover, but is not limited to, colour calibration workflows and standards.
This will be an AHFAP Members only event and will cost is £25 per person. Tickets will be available shortly. Please check http://www.ahfap.org.uk/conferences/communicating-colour/ for information updates.
This will be a quite informal event and we expect around 30-40 people to attend. If you would like to participate by giving a short presentation/talk or running a workshop or just want some more information, then please send me a message on [log in to unmask]
Also, later on today there will be more news on imaging standards and colour measurements from Andrew Bruce from Postal Museum.
