Resources like ours help individuals and institutions preserve and protect their collections. Advance your skills with program materials, professional development, and funding opportunities.


Preserving cultural heritage is essential, but it also presents complex challenges.

Conservation professionals partner with communities to define the needs of cultural heritage objects and advocate for their care, and while the end result of conservation is often very public and continues to involve those communities in ongoing stewardship, the work involved has historically not been very visible to others.

We have developed the following to help you engage with your community about the work being done to preserve cultural heritage at local, national, and international levels.

Outreach by the Public

Learn more about what conservation is and how you can get more involved, and explore ways to share conservation with your community.
