This paper aims to support conservators to be recognised as positive changemakers. Effective changemakers can diagnose their experience of change, recognise their opportunity to negotiate and influence outcomes, identify the scale and depth of change required and the impact that change will have on others. Conservation practice has change at its core, with interventions on objects, collections or buildings that change them or their environment: beneficial conservation is cooperative and inclusive in how those changes are conceived and delivered. The paper considers change beyond conservation treatments offering a selection of tools and techniques to help diagnose and deliver change. The importance of engaging others in discussions and decision-making for delivering positive change is stressed.
