They are visiting Melbourne to consult on the complex conservation issues of the Collingwood Keith Haring Mural.

Examples of artworks they have worked on in the USA, Italy, Spain, other parts of Europe, China and Cambodia will be discussed as well as Will’s work with the Rescue Public Murals initiative.
