CAORC ANNOUNCES: The Responsive Preservation Initiative for Cultural Heritage Resources
Dear Colleagues:
 
CAORC is pleased to announce a new program: The Responsive Preservation Initiative for Cultural Heritage Resources - funded by the J.M. Kaplan Fund.
 
The program is designed to aid in the preservation of the cultural heritage resources in crisis in countries within American overseas research centers’ networks. Targeted preservation efforts include conservation interventions for architecture and artifacts, on-site salvage work, documentation campaigns, as well as key presentation and management strategies in select situational contexts.
 

We are asking each ORC to share this announcement widely with their networks.

We will fund projects in: Algeria, Cyprus, Egypt, Greece, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Libya, Morocco, The Palestinian Territories, Tunisia, Turkey, and Yemen.

CAORC will contact your center for input if a project from your country/region passes our initial review process.  

Please note that applications will be considered on a rolling basis. Available funds are limited and priority is given to projects applying between April - August 2017.

Dr. Katharyn Hanson (TARII US Director) is facilitating the launch and review of these projects and she would be happy to answer any questions, please contact her at (katharyn.hanson@gmail.com).
