Professional Development for Conservators: Providing Preservation and Access for the Humanities

Professional development through workshops offered around the country for conservators responsible for the care of humanities collections. Up to 17 advanced conservation workshops would be held for an estimated 546 conservators. Five new workshops would be developed on such topics as sustainable collections care practices, media consolidation for manuscripts on parchment, and photographic chemistry for preservation.

The Foundation of the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (FAIC) seeks funding to support 17 presentations of 8 courses over a two year period, including 8 online presentations. This initiative is part of FAIC's expanding program of professional development for conservators of cultural heritage, and builds on the successes and lessons learned from previous programs. An estimated 546 conservators and allied professionals will participate. 20 scholarships will increase access for conservators in under-served regions through travel stipends. Workshops will take place in four states, the District of Columbia, and online.
