Conservation relies on material evidence and continuous assessment of the materials and techniques being used for monitoring or treating heritage. Dr Athanasios Velios will discuss the barriers for sharing documentation records alongside the ethical responsibilities of conservation organisations towards the profession and the public. Margaret White will discuss strategies institutions are using to tackle issues of dissociation in the context of major collections projects, such as relocation and digitisation.
David Saunders, Scott Rosenfeld and Ian Langston will each explore the topic of Light and managing its impact on collections, with a Q&A session following the three presentations.
This year the NZAA Annual Conference will be held at the Suncourt Hotel, 14 Norcroft Street, Taupo.

#Ask A Conservator Day
Conservators around the world answer questions about their work on Ask a Conservator Day. By using the hashtag #AskAConservator on social media platforms (such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram), we work to provide a holistic view of what conservation entails—everything from individual conservators working in private practice to multiple departments at large institutions.
