Australian Institute for the Conservation of Cultural Material (AICCM)

The Australian Institute for the Conservation of Cultural material (AICCM) is the professional organisation for conservators in Australia.

AICCM members support and work by the AICCM Code of Ethics and Code of Practice. These documents govern our approach to preservation, restoration and conservation treatment.

AICCM’s membership is made up of professional conservators, conservation students and cultural heritage member organisations. Our membership also includes people who work in related professions, such as archivists, architects, curators and librarians, as well as volunteers and those with a general interest in cultural heritage.

AICCM can provide advice on how to protect your valuable collections during a disaster, as well as provide best practice information on rescuing items that may have been lost or damaged. AICCM can also help you find a conservator. The AICCM directory of conservators in private practice lists over 65 members in Australia who are Professional Members of the AICCM and you can use it to find an expert in your region who is qualified to care for your art, object or memorabilia.

Artlab Australia

Artlab Australia is a recognised leader in the conservation of cultural collections with a national and international reputation for excellence.

A South Australian government agency, we provide expert services for the preservation, care and management of the state’s cultural collections. We work principally for and in partnership with the major collecting institutions and, additionally, we support collections in community hands – regionally, nationally and internationally, on a fee-for-service basis.

Our skilled and professional conservators undertake stabilisation, repair and restoration of a huge variety of artefacts. These range from major artworks and ethnographic and historic artefacts, to archival documents and records, large technology items and outdoor monuments.

In addition to complex and delicate practical treatments, our services include disaster preparedness planning, environmental management of display and storage conditions in order to prevent deterioration, and research and analysis that contributes to both the development of conservation practice and to a greater knowledge and understanding of cultural artefacts and works of art.

We offer preventive conservation for collections, training of conservators through internships, conservation capacity building projects overseas, and education and advisory services to support communities in the preservation of their cultural heritage.
