Join us at the inaugural Preservation Matters: The Annual Preventive Conservation Conference!
Join Conserv as we discuss harnessing the power of community – within your own organization and beyond – to help each other achieve preventive conservation goals. Connect with other preservation professionals for lively conversation about partnering with your facilities team, what we’ve learned from mistakes, codesigning new preventive conservation tools, and much more!
Hosted at the Culture House
The main day of programming will take place at the Culture House, a unique art and community space in a historic church building with a mix of eclectic architectural styles. The iconic building’s exterior is fully painted by renowned Atlanta-based muralist HENSE, and artwork by Stephen Benedicto will be on exhibit.
