WORKING TOGETHER: COLLABORATION BETWEEN EXPERTS AND COMMUNITIES

Despite the current wide diversity of museums covering the most varied topics one can imagine, the museum is still generally accepted among the general public to be a big building that houses art that nobody can touch, a safe house for objects to be suspended in time and guarded for eternity.

This post refers to coursework done for ARCLG141 (2015-16), one of the core courses of the UCL MA  Principles of Conservation. As part of their assessed work for this course, students were asked to design and produce a poster communicating specific aspects of conservation. We hope you enjoy our work! Comments are most welcome.
