The Conservation Network supports conservators in their work by facilitating information sharing and skills development. This regional programme compliments national opportunities such as those provided by our professional body Icon (http://www.icon.org.uk/) and works in partnership with the East Anglian Conservators Forum. We also co-ordinate a regional e-mail group and provide access to training and information about conservation and collections care for conservators. We disseminate information and resources to the wider museums community across the East of England, supporting the SHARE syllabus. For more information, take a look at SHARE’s Collections Care Syllabus (opens as a PDF).
The 2013-14 calendar is in development. Details of Conservation Network events and training courses will be available from September 2013.
