Conservation Matters in Wales Xmas Conference: More than an object - conserving our intangible heritage.

Fersiwn Gymraeg i ddilyn yn fuan
Call for papers and save the date:

Wednesday, December 19th 2018.
Insole Court, Cardiff  https://www.insolecourt.org/

A one day conference organised by Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales, The Federation of Museums and Art Galleries of Wales and Cardiff University.

One day conference that explores the relationship between the conservation of tangible heritage and its associated intangible values.

Conservation has been traditionally associated with the “do not touch” message generated by a desire to protect but this approach can also erect barriers between communities and their cultural heritage. The conference celebrates the work of collections care professionals that breaks down this barrier and reconnects communities with their heritage.
Papers are welcomed that demonstrate a conservation approach informed by a combination of preservation of intangible and tangible heritage values. These may include:

•Public consultation
•Conservation of skills
•Community participation
•Memory
•Effective sustainable practice
•Lessons learned
•Object’s significance and value

Proposals are invited for 20 minute presentations, 5 minute shorts, 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. 

The conference will conclude with an open floor discussion. Contributors are sought to launch the discussion with thoughts or case studies for a 2 minute presentation (no PowerPoint) that explores the following question: 
 
“How do those in collections care contribute to the wider mission of an organisation.” 

The cross disciplinary conference will be attended by conservators, curators, collection managers and other professionals engaged in the care of collections. Proposals are welcomed from those inside and outside of Wales. The conference ethos is to be a low cost inclusive network, and whilst we can offer speakers a free place we unfortunately do not have a budget to cover speaker expenses.

If you are interested in speaking please send a brief summary of your proposal to William Tregaskes admin@cynonvalleymuseum.wales by the 2nd of November.

Call for papers and save the date: Conservation Matters Annual Christmas Conference

Conservation Matters in Wales December 2017:  Past practice, future practice.

National Museum Wales, Cardiff

Tuesday, December 19th 2017. 

Conservation connects past to the future but how do we make this link in our own practice? 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.
 
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.

If you are interested in speaking please send a brief summary of your proposal to Pamela Murray murraypf@cardiff.ac.uk by the 10th of November.
