If you are interested in speaking please send a brief summary of your proposal to Pamela Murray at by the 10th of November. 

Proposals are invited for 20 minute presentations, 5 minute shorts or posters as well as workshops or discussions that explore the conference’s broad theme. The conference hashtag will be #consinwales and we also welcome suggestions for presentations that may be shared virtually.


Event description: 

The conference will take place on December 19, 2017

Conservation connects past to the future but how do we make this link in our own practise? This one day conference will look back at previous conservation practises, look forward to where we’re going, examine how they are connected and explore where there are opportunities to innovate.

The cross disciplinary conference will be attended by conservators, curators, collection managers and other professionals engaged in the care of collections and we particularly welcome proposals that would be appropriate to this audience. Proposals are welcomed from those inside and outside of Wales.

The Welsh conservation sector has made innovation a response to tight economic frameworks whilst working together to maintain best practice. This is embodied in the recently launched conservation principles and we welcome papers that explore these themes.
