Support our fellow conservators in France

New legislation in France has limited the conservation profession to the arts and crafts field, therefore ignoring specificity, knowledge and skills necessary to practice. 

It has been reported that only one percent of French conservators are hired by heritage institutions, making their voices almost impossible to be heard.

A group of French artists and professionals in the culture/heritage sector, as well as professional organizations have written a letter to the French government to ask for recognition of conservators' qualifications and a change to work conditions/contracts.
