Info

The Association of European Printing Museums (AEPM) conference is an annual event bringing together print museums, print artists, researchers and enthusiasts from across Europe and on a global scale. Over three days conversations, lessons and exchanges will contribute to the active survival and exchange of knowledge.

Print heritage, the history of communication, its life long skills and intangible knowledge are at a constant state of uncertainty. Print museums are down to their last survivors, what is the future for these organisations? With more artists and designers taking an active role in the future of print? How can we use our combined skills, utilise fully the collections we have and connect with audiences today? The Arts of Survival, during global uncertainty, environmental uncertainty, and heritage uncertainty is now more key than ever. However, in the face of it all, new approaches, innovative ideas and a younger generation of enthusiasts keeps the print museum alive.
