Conservators care for our cultural heritage. In Australia the conservation profession is growing with more students enrolling and graduating each year. As a graduate moving into a new career as a conservator, I wondered why there wasn't a printed conservation magazine aimed at conservators, artists, the museum sector and the interested public alike. I saw the creation of this magazine as an opportunity to engage further with the profession and connect others with what we do.

There is a team of around ten recent graduates and current students busily creating the content for Issue 1 of The Condition Report. Printed in full colour on quality paper, featuring insightful and entertaining articles, The Condition Report is the new quarterly art conservation magazine you don't want to miss.

Within the pages of The Condition Report, you will find interviews with artists, conservators and students, product reviews, project reports, trading corner, puzzles and lots of fun conservation stuff.
