ACT Division sponsors two students for ICOM-CC!

Congratulations to Jacqueline Spence and Tessa Bell who have been awarded student registrations by the ACT Division! The winners were chosen based on a written expression of interest.

A photo of Jacqueline SpenceA photo of Tessa BellJacqueline hopes the conference will give her a ‘lift’ and says that being a part of a gathering of conservators and other cultural heritage specialists will provide her with a fresh outlook and motivation. She hopes the conference will broaden her understanding of the fundamental purpose of conservation and also have a better understanding how conservation fits in and contributes to all aspects of human life.

Tessa feels she is only just beginning to learn about the role of conservation to construct culture and wishes to attend the conference to see, hear and think about these issues more. She also wants to listen to wildly clever professionals as they explain what they are learning about science, and the challenges and endeavour within the changing landscape of conservation.

We hope they enjoy the conference!
