The AICCM Victorian Branch Committee invites applications from potential speakers for a public event entitled ‘Stories from Conservation’, to be held on the evening of Tuesday 15th May, at the Melbourne Museum Theatre. The event will be hosted by the AICCM Vic Branch, in conjunction with the Australian Heritage Festival. 

This event will incorporate six distinct lightning talks of approximately 8-10 minutes each. If you have an inspiring story about conservation research and practise in Victoria that you’d like to share, we want you! The lightning talks will be facilitated by the President of AICCM Vic Branch, Elizabeth McCartney.

The purpose of the event is to celebrate and acknowledge the incredible work conservators are undertaking, often ‘behind the scenes’ to protect Victoria’s heritage. The event is intended to raise awareness of AICCM and the conservation profession, and to inform the general public about the care of objects of cultural significance, through the presentation of fascinating conservation stories.

The target audience is interested members of the general public. Also expected to attend are Victorian conservators, both institutional and in private practice, conservation students, and affiliated professionals such as curators, registrars and library and archives staff. A small attendance fee will be charged to cover costs associated with venue hire.
