NORDIC SOCIETY FOR CONSERVATORS - SWEDEN
NKF-S is a non-profit organisation for conservators in Sweden. Our members work with conservation issues concerning art, culture, natural history collections and heritage environments.
The role of a conservator is to reduce and where possible prevent the deterioration of heritage collections by preserving, conserving and in some cases restoring them for aesthetic reasons.
Associate membership of the NKF-S is open to anyone interested in conservation. Ordinary membership may be sought by those who have completed at least years 3 years study at university level. Ordinary members are eligible to apply for a scholarship from the Märta, Gunnar and Arvid Bothens Foundation to support travel to conferences or special projects.
The society has it own publication, REALIA, and organises two meetings a year for members.
NKF-S links Swedish members to the central Nordic Conservators Society (NKF), which also has sections in Denmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland. Members of NKF-S receive the NKF publication Meddelelser om Konservering (MoK).
NKF was founded in 1950 and functions as a regional group in "The International Institute for the Conservation of Artistic and Historic Works (IIC), and is known as "Nordic IIC group." The four national sections are also members of "The European Confederation of Conservator-Restorers Organisations"(ECCO).
