Event Details

In this meeting of the EACF/SHARE conservation network, we will be exploring the challenges and conservation considerations of safely suspending or “floating” museum objects for exhibition and display.

Speakers from a range of institutions, including national and regional museums and private practice, will share their experiences of creating aesthetically pleasing and dynamic displays, be they permanent or temporary, with the emphasis on object preservation.

In keeping with the network’s aims of improving knowledge and skills alongside developing networking opportunities for museum professionals, this meeting looks into an area of museum work that requires collaboration between disciplines, with ample opportunity for discussion and skills sharing.

There is a £5 fee to attend, payable at the door. 

Refreshments and lunch will be provided 

This event is suitable for: Conservators, prospective conservators, curators, and those commissioning or managing conservation/exhibition work
