Des Moines Art Center, Des Moines, IA
Nicole Grabow, MACC Director of Preventive Conservation
Disaster Preparedness is an essential aspect of collections stewardship at every institution, large or small, and 85% of collections emergencies worldwide involve exposure to water. However, hands-on training opportunities in wet salvage protocols remain infrequent and difficult to find. This workshop will introduce salvage protocols for wet collections materials and build confidence in preparing for disaster response.
Fee: $95 Online registration coming soon.
