nav shield  Experts@Work

Blue Shield is focussed on building a strong experts group to call on in case of an emergency or disaster. People from all over the world are volunteering their expertise to the safeguarding of cultural heritage.
This means that the Blue Shield network consist of people with experience in the field of conservation and restoration (paper, art, architecture, archeology, stone) but also of people with training and planning skills and those who are experienced in raising funds and other resources.
We want you to meet them through their stories.
