Megan Narvey explores the manner in which participatory conservation as a process not only benefits indigenous communities, but can also be seen as a meaningful and effective endeavour for conservators themselves. She also highlights some of the main benefits of participatory work for the field of conservation, for example, how engaging with public audiences can make the field better known and demonstrate conservators' roles as enablers of collections use. The poster furthermore aims to start a conversation among professional conservators on the subject.
This is the abstract of a poster to be presented at 'The impact of cross-disciplinary conservation on social development', the UCL Institute of Archaeology Annual Conference 2014.
The conference will be held Friday and Saturday, 16 & 17 May 2014, at the UCL Institute of Archaeology in Lecture Theatre G6 from 8:30 to 18:00. Conference posters will be on display all day Friday in room 612.
