Conservation Matters Wales: Virtual Conference 2021

Welcoming you to the return of the popular Christmas conference (virtually this year).

Call for abstracts still open!

Book now, and send us your talk proposals. This year's theme is focused on' breaking the isolation'.

We are going to ​celebrate ​the small wins that you may have had whilst we have been apart and hear about unexpected opportunities for collaboration and new discoveries. Conservators are resilient and innovative, and we want to hear about things you have learnt and spaces for reflection. 

In addition to the talks, we will run a virtual coffee break chat - the first 5 minutes will be your chance to grab a paned then there will be 15 mins in break out rooms to engage in a little informal networking on the theme of the conference.

This cross disciplinary conference will be attended by conservators, curators, collection managers and others engaged in the care of collections. The conference ethos is to be an inclusive network and proposals are welcomed from those inside and outside of Wales. 

Cadwraeth yng Nghymru / Conservation Matters Wales is a collaboration between Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales, the Federation of Museums and Art Galleries in Wales, and Cardiff University.
