Jacinta Brown (project manager and conservator) in collaboration with Ock Pop Tok directors Veomanee Douangdala and Joanna Smith.
We propose to build a custom made facility that incorporates:
- conservation appropriate storage of the collection
- digitisation of the collection with computer access
- a conservation treatment and examination area
- exhibition and workshop/education space.
The facility will be located at the Ock Pop Tok Living Craft Centre (LCC) in Luang Prabang.
The project is part of the not for profit arm of Ock Pop Tok: Fibre 2 Fabric.
