Conservation

Conservators help to preserve the world’s memory by caring for a wide range of works of art, artifacts and structures which have significance for the local, national and global community. Conservators are skilled professionals who undertake a wide range of activities including developing preservation strategies, undertaking interventive conservation (such as repair or chemical treatments) liaising with other museum professionals and being advocates for conservation to the wider community.

Pathway Highlights

This pathway has a successful track record of producing award winning students, such as Erica Kotze, who recently won the prestigious Pilgrim Trust Student Conservator of the Year Award for her MA Conservation project completed at Camberwell – The Conservation of a Thai Samut Khao Bhuddist Medical Manuscript.
