Conservators and heritage scientists are highly trained professionals working to save the things that matter most to people - everything from national treasures to family heirlooms and collectables.
Icon's 2,300 members come from a variety of backgrounds, and have followed a range of career paths, developing their specialisms and interests along the way. Some work as conservation managers or preventive conservators and have responsibility for looking after an entire collection; others focus on the assessment and treatment of objects within a particular specialism. Many conservators work for public institutions such as national and regional museums or galleries, archives and libraries, or in historic properties. Others are employed by private conservation studios and conservation contractors. Some operate as freelancers, running their own microbusinesses.
With our shared commitment to care for cultural heritage, together we are Icon.
