SHARING KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE
SHAKE in Conservation is a platform that aims to support professional development and connect cultural Heritage conservators. We offer opportunities to meet, to share knowledge and experience.
SHAKE in Conservation coordinates and organises events such as
conference days like Conservation Talks
workshops helpful to different areas of specialisation
informal meets wherein participants can share knowledge and experience in a relaxed and constructive way
You can find here useful data for conservators. We are currently sharing links and posting titles of master theses from Belgian Conservation programmes.
Would you like us to share additional content? Send us an email with your suggestions!
SHAKE's LinkedIn group enables participants to:
share announcements regarding opportunities to learn, work, and disseminate research
discuss professional experience, issues or practical needs (such as group orders, collaborations, or insurance/professional status questions)
SHAKE is not responsible for information exchanged on social media. We recommend users of our online tools to contact professionals directly concerning conservation issues.

OUR MAIN OBJECTIVES:
DISSEMINATE INSTITUTIONAL AND PRIVATE CONSERVATION RESEARCH
CONTRIBUTE TO THE PERMANENT EDUCATION OF CONSERVATORS
HELP CONSERVATORS EXTEND THEIR PROFESSIONAL NETWORKS
SHAKE in Conservation was founded in 2017 as a result of the interaction between conservators active in the private and public sectors, PhD research or education, ranging in fields from archaeology to contemporary art. SHAKE in Conservation is a non-profit organisation based in Belgium. English was chosen as the main language to bridge the gap between Dutch and French native speakers.
Our activities target all students and professionals involved in Heritage and its conservation.
We aim to create connection at different levels: interdisciplinary, inter-academic, intergenerational, intercommunity.
