Abstract: This poster counters the traditional roles that museum based conservators undertake by considering how they have risen to the challenge of globalization in terms of intangible heritage, mass movement of collections and the digitization of museum objects. It calls for conservators to be integrated at a higher level of decision-making within the museum, and essentially a reconceptualization of the museum itself. This topic in its infancy begins from desk based research.
This poster would be displayed in the conference of an international organization concerned with conservation and museums. It is aimed at a broad audience in the heritage sector as most can relate to the topic and language.
