2014 American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (AIC) 42nd Annual Meeting Call for Papers
Conscientious Conservation – Sustainable Choices in Collection Care
Hyatt Regency Embarcadero, San Francisco, California, USA
May 28-31, 2014
Conservation and collection care professionals routinely incorporate preventive measures into the care of cultural heritage. Coupled with the awareness that our work takes place within the larger context of an increasingly interconnected and vulnerable global society, economy and environment, we have become more dedicated to the issue of sustainability.
The conference will showcase current practice, projects, tools and ideas in sustainable preventive conservation and collection care. Have you altered your preventive conservation practices to include sustainable materials or methods? Have you selected one collection care choice over another because one was more economically sustainable-resulting in environmental benefit as well? Have you helped a community implement preventive conservation to preserve its cultural heritage and at the same time strengthened the community’s own sustainability? If so we hope you will share your expertise and experience with your colleagues!
