This Fact Sheet will assist galleries to plan for and respond to the impacts of climate change.
It provides a 5 step approach to prepare for the increased likelihood of disasters that have not previously posed a serious threat, and a useful table to assist galleries to mitigate the impacts of climate change on their operations and collections.
The Fact Sheet has been developed by the Grimwade Centre for Cultural Materials Conservation, The University of Melbourne:
Professor Robyn Sloggett
Cripps Foundation Chair in Cultural Materials Conservation & Director
Dr Marcelle Scott
