Call for Papers for Conservation Matters in Wales: The Impact of Conservation

Taking place at the Glynn Vivian Art Gallery, Swansea on 8th June 2017, this free event is being supported by National Conservation Service Wales. 

It will explore the impacts and effects of conservation on collections, visitors, education programmes, outreach, exhibitions, partnership working and more…

  • How has your conservation project had an impact on the visitors to your venue?
  • Has conservation enabled greater access to collections?
  • Has conservation been an essential part and enabler of a bigger project?
  • Have you had to demonstrate impact to secure a grant? How have you done so?


Proposals are being sought for for 20/30 minute papers that address the above themes in the widest sense.
Short proposals should be submitted, by 14th April, to Jenny Williamson at
