Our first presenter is Angélica Isa Adaniya. Her presentation, "Preventive Conservation on a Shoestring: Cutting Budgets, Not Corners," will look through the 10 agents of deterioration to talk about how we can avoid and block potential risks and damage to our collections when we are suffering from budget cuts and other limitations. It is easy to believe dwindling budgets can equal total disaster. It is certainly a real risk. However, a mindful review and reorganisation of our available resources is likely to highlight unexpected opportunities and lead to surprising results. Three main examples regarding environmental monitoring, integrated pest management and dissociation will prove that no money does not necessarily mean no conservation standards.

Angélica has been a conservator for the Pachacamac site museum in Lima, under the Ministry of Culture of Peru since 2016. She studied anthropology at Grinnell College and then went on to pursue a Masters in Conservation of Archaeological and Museum Objects at University of Durham, in the U.K. She has been in charge of creating and implementing the preventive conservation programme and volunteers as the social media manager for the museum as well. Angélica is interested in bringing conservation closer to the general public and is beginning a journey as an online course creator for museum and conservation topics.
