The Heritage Council Conservation Internship Scheme with Irish cultural institutions celebrates 10 Years

The Heritage Council  is delighted to mark 10 years of the Conservation Internship Scheme with Irish cultural institutions as part of the European Year of Cultural Heritage by launching a short booklet on the outcomes of the scheme.

This is being launched at the Institute of Conservator Restorers Conference  in the National Gallery of Ireland today by Jane Maxwell, Heritage Council Board Member. The booklet marks the creativity of a simple but effective collaboration between cultural institutions, the Heritage Council, and recent graduates in conservation. The scheme provides important conservation care for our more fragile and ephemeral heritage, and also provides greater capacity in the heritage sector and the opportunity  for younger people and recent graduates  to hone their skills. As a result of 10 years of this scheme  Dublin  has become an important hub in the international conservation field.
