Watch our brilliant short films and find out about the impact of the Trust's support
To celebrate the Trust’s 20th anniversary, we visited some Plowden Scholars who are now building successful careers in conservation, and some CPD grant recipients to get their thoughts about the impact of the support they have had from the Trust to train as conservators and to update their skills.
We also spoke to leading members of the conservation profession to find out what impact they feel the Anna Plowden Trust has made over the past 20 years.
