Public outreach programs

Artlab Australia and the State Library of South Australia are
exploring possibilities the development of a facility that allows
the public a "behind the scenes" view of conservators at work and of
broader conservation public programs . We would be delighted to hear
from anyone who:

    *   has worked in a lab that provides "behind the scenes" access
        for the public and who would like to comment on the
        advantages and disadvantages, how they have approached the
        design of such labs, how it affects treatment programs, what
        the public response is etc.

    *   is involved in developing conservation public programs such
        as, provision of information on the conservation profession,
        information on conservation ethics, information on what
        conservation involves, preventive conservation information.
        The emphasis here is less on training programs and more on
        people's experience of delivery systems preferred by the
        public eg, face to face talks, touch screen computer systems
        etc. Comments on your preferred delivery systems and on the
        impact of these on your conservation treatment programs would
        also be very welcome.
