The American Institute for Conservation is hosting the third annual Ask a Conservator Day on Thursday, November 4, 2021, when conservation and preservation professionals take to social media to discuss and explore ways the community works to preserve cultural heritage. Arts professionals who oversee municipal or public art collections may find a wealth of information and new connections by engaging with the hashtag #AskAConservator. It’s also a great opportunity for local arts agencies that work directly with artists to encourage those artists to ask questions about archival materials or archiving their work.

AIC also will host an “Ask Me Anything” style panel on Nov. 4, answering questions submitted both live and in advance of the panel. Submit your questions here and tune in on AIC’s Twitter feed to join the conversation, and use #AskAConservator across social media to help spread the word.
