This conference fair is actually a mini-conference during a conference dedicated to magic lantern slide, a historical projection medium used for entertainment and education between the 17th century and circa the 1950's.

With poster presentations by academics of various humanities disciplines, museum staff, with live music, film presentations by the makers themselves, demonstrations of digital tools, performances and stands of rare books and collector's item, this fair is the ideal way to see how this often forgotten material is used in a meaningful way by researchers, curators, artists and museum staff. If you look for inspiration for the coming academic year - drop by!

This conference fair is part of the international conference A Million Pictures: History, Archiving, and Creative Re-use of Educational Magic Lantern Slides.
