Conservation Education

Art Conservation Workshops, Technical Meetings and Formal Education

This project involves generous inputs by a number of individuals and institutions from across the world. As part of continuing education in art conservation the project is constantly networking and collaborating to share these inputs with people involved in conservation and in related fields.

This garnering of information and an equally spirited dissemination of it is at the heart of this project. We realise the importance of this sharing and collaborative learning to create an active and vibrant art conservation community that is willing to work together to develop the art conservation field in India.

The Material & Technology surveys being carried out for this project entail the following:

Technical meetings - We invite and involve practitioners, academicians, specialists and policy makers to take part in a series of technical meetings and workshops that are being held to create the reference documents. These meetings can be one on one or could be group interactions.

Workshops - Workshops can be organised at the state or national level

Formal Education - The well defined focus of this project to share learning has encouraged us to team up with other institutions to create formal programmes for education in the field of heritage conservation for university students, practioners and custodians of cultural collections.
