Building upon the success of the previous six events, the programme has been developed into a full day conference (hence the small charge) where delegates will be given the opportunity to hear a wide range of presentations and take part in interactive sessions, including:  

  • How to best apply the Professional Standards to your projects.
  • Delegates will be given the opportunity to deliver their own PechaKucha presentations
  • Collaborative working in the conservation profession. 


The event is being Chaired by Sarah Peek ACR, Chair of the Icon Accreditation Committee, and private Ceramics Conservator based in Brighton. Key topics being explored though the event include:

Recent ACRs share their experiences
Three recently Accredited conservators, Emma Coburn ACRJillian Harrold ACR and Alexandra Walker ACR will share their experiences of going through the Accreditation process, running through key projects they included in their application and how they used these to demonstrate the Professional Standards. 

Managing complex sites and engaging stakeholders
Deborah Cane ACR, Conservation Manager for Sculpture and Instillation Art at Tate will discuss the management and challenges of the Hepworth Sculpture Garden at Tate St Ives.

Development of Ethical Guidance for Conservation
Led by Lorraine Finch ACR, Chair of Icon's Ethics Task and Finish Group, Lorraine will lead an interactive session discussing the development of ethical guidance for the Conservation profession. 

PechaKucha sessions
The opportunity to hear from your fellow delegates, engaging in quick fire presentations discussing projects, new ideas and development opportunities. 

Plus more to be announced in due course! 

Do you want to do a PechaKucha? 
20 slides for 20 seconds each (which are timed to keep you on track!). You can discuss anything you want to, be it a recent project you've worked on, engaging the local community or even a reflection on something you have done to support your professional development. Its a great opportunity to promote your work and share your experiences with other members.  If you're interested in taking part please indicate when you book, there will also be an opportunity to put yourself forward later too.
