#askaconservator Day

Updated: Oct 27, 2020

Conservators around the world answer questions about their work on Ask a Conservator Day. The next Ask a Conservator Day will take place on November 18th, 2020. We hold Ask a Conservator day in November in remembrance of the flooding of Florence on November 4th, 1966, which damaged priceless cultural heritage. However, in response to the catastrophe, incredible efforts were made—and are still being undertaken—to conserve the items impacted by the flood. Ask a Conservator Day follows in the spirit of that international collaboration and exchange of knowledge. We acknowledge and celebrate the growth of the field inspired by the response to the flood by creating an opportunity for people to engage with conservators on social media. By using the hashtag #AskAConservator on social media platforms (such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram), we work to provide a holistic view of what conservation entails—everything from individual conservators working in private practice to multiple departments at large institutions. To show a representative picture of conservation, we need your help! Please promote this event on your social media accounts and participate in any way that feels appropriate. This could include:

  • making yourself available to answer questions about conservation on your personal social media;

  • working with your institution to use their social media handles to engage with their audiences; or

  • answering questions on a Livestream from your lab

If you’re participating, let FAIC Outreach Coordinator Katelin Lee know by filling out this quick form! We've drafted some sample posts to help promote your participation. You can also use the following images with your posts.
