Icon ACR Conference

The ACR Conference is an annual gathering of Icon's accredited members with the aim of providing the opportunity to network and discuss key topics to inspire them in their professional development. 

The events bring together members from right across the breadth of the conservation profession to participate in a wide range of lively and engaging debates.  

Previous conferences:

2020 - Communication, Language, and Impact
For 2020, the conference moved online. Across four weekly webinars, speakers from inside and outside of the profession discussed how conservators talk about what they do to promote their professional practice and how this contributes to the ongoing development of the profession. 

2019 - Collaborative Working
Drawing on the theme of collaboration, the 2019 conference explored how conservators work with other conservators, other professionals, clients or even members of the public to shape the development of projects as well as their own professional development. 

2018 - Advocacy and Engagement 
Building on the success of the inaugural conference last year, the 2018 conference saw speakers from in and outside of the conservation profession addressing the themes of Advocacy and Engagement.
