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 12 advanced conservation workshops would be held for approximately 150 conservators. Five new workshops would also be developed on such topics as the conservation of digital prints, contemporary print identification, and preventive conservation.

The Foundation of the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (FAIC) seeks funding to support fourteen presentations of eight workshops over a two year period. 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 152 conservators will participate. 30 scholarships will increase access for conservators in under-served regions through travel stipends. Workshops will take place in six states and the District of Columbia.
