    I am currently a masters student conducting research on the
    curation and conservation of memorial artifacts and any related
    social issues. I am hoping that conservators, curators, and
    archivists would be willing to answer a few questions below
    regarding your experiences with these types of materials.

    I am particularly interested in memorials created by common
    people as opposed to commissioned artists, in response to public
    events as well as private. They can even be in response to
    long-term events such as the AIDS epidemic. The results will be
    included in a masters thesis in conservation for Camberwell
    College of Art, London Institute, as well as forming the basis
    for further research.

    1.  Are you involved in the conservation, curation, research or
        archiving of memorial artifacts by non-commissioned, folk,
        itinerant, anonymous artists and/or vernacular artists?
