This congress will cover the conservation of a wide range of built heritage including: archaeological sites; archives and collections; historic buildings, castles and palaces; religious buildings including churches and temples; built structures including bridges, walls and monuments; in-situ collections housed in the buildings for which they were commissioned or collected and decorative surfaces in historic buildings. Whilst primarily looking at the work of conservators and conservation scientists, proposals demonstrating collaborative working with other conservation professionals will be of particular interest.
Do you have experience and knowledge of object conservation and the ability to work independently? Have you worked with collections teams to deliver exhibitions and support loans or acquisitions?
