How does the Grimwade Centre contribute to future, current and past communities?
A critical strength of the Centre for Cultural Materials Conservation programs is our engagement with community and with commercial conservation services. Our outcome-based community engagement projects enable our staff and students to develop culturally relevant skills whilst making a significant practical contribution to the cultural preservation of specific communities around Australia and the Asia Pacific region.
Partners and networks
The Grimwade Centre has many collaborative partners and networks both national and international.
Indigenous communities and programs
The Grimwade Centre has established Indigenous-based partnerships to examine applied knowledge relating to the production and preservation of cultural material in indigenous communities in Australia and the Asia-Pacific.
Conservation Commercial Services
Operating since 1989, our commercial conservation services are offered through our North Melbourne premises, specialising in all areas of art restoration and museum standard conservation to institutions and private clients.
With support from the Grimwade Centre’s Advisory Board, the centre is a joint initiative of the Faculty of Arts, Faculty of Science and the Ian Potter Museum of Art.
