Dr Ian MacLeod

The Institutional ICOM Australia Award for International Relations was awarded jointly to the Western Australian Museum and the National Research Institute of Maritime Cultural Heritage in South Korea for a marine archaeological excavation and conservation project of which Dr Ian MacLeod was one of the lead participants.

The prestigious ICOM Australia Award for International Relations (IAAIR) is a recognition by peers across the museums profession of the important work that the award recipients do in reaching across cultural boundaries to preserve cultural heritage. It celebrates the exceptional work undertaken by individuals and Australian institutions to strengthen international ties and contribute to the cultural richness of our region.

The prominence of conservators (and long time AICCM supporters) within these awarded projects, highlights how highly valued and well respected conservators, and the work they undertake, are within the broader industry.

The awards were presented on Sunday night at the 2014 Museums Australia Conference dinner in Launceston May 201 by Dr Robin Hirst Chair, ICOM Australia.
