The New Zealand Conservators of Cultural Material (NZCCM)
National Conference 2009
Conservation in Public
Auckland, New Zealand
October 21-23-2009

The New Zealand Conservators of Cultural Material will be holding
its next National Conference in Auckland.  The intention of the
conference is to examine the public face of conservation and how the
profession can remain relevant in a rapidly changing world. If we
are to continue to preserve our material culture, how can we promote
a better understanding of why it should be done and how this might
be achieved? The conference will provide a forum for discussion
about conservation in New Zealand, its past and its future.  It will
present an opportunity to challenge current practices and allow
meaningful debate amongst the public and heritage sector.

Proposals are invited for presentations that address the topic and
may include:

    How conservation has changed, new approaches to conservation and
    historical perspectives, contemporary problems and contemporary
    solutions, conservation treatments, research or preventive

We also welcome artists, curators, registrars and people in other
arts and museum related fields to present a paper related to their
experience and perception of conservation.

Proposals for workshops may also be considered.

Abstracts up to 300 words in length should be submitted by 31 May
2009. Speakers will be notified by 31 June 2009 if their submissions
have been accepted.
