Get involved! #AskAConservator day is Monday, 4th November

On 4 November 2019, conservators around the world will be participating in #AskAConservator day in a unified effort to engage people in the wonderfully varied and important work of conservators through social media on Twitter.

The date marks the anniversary of the 1966 flood of the Arno river that damaged and destroyed numerous pieces of priceless cultural heritage in Florence. The disaster inspired new methods in conservation and restoration and spurred an international commitment to the conservation mission.

#AskAConservator day aims to recognize that international collaboration and the subsequent growth of the conservation field.  The initiative is a great idea from our friends across the pond at the AIC!

Naturally, Icon will be participating in the event along with many of our members – whether emerging or established, in private practice or a public institution, in the UK or abroad.  It's definitely going to be a day to keep an eye on the hashtag #AskAConservator to experience the depth, breadth and diversity of the conservation profession!

If you intend on participating, please make sure to include Icon’s Twitter handle @Conservators_UK so that we can retweet you and share it with our audiences.

We hope you'll join us as we help celebrate the work of all conservators on 4th November!
