Cooperative agreement with a USA IHE or nonprofit organization for a series of workshops on the topic of cultural preservation. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to provide networking activities for cultural preservation professionals around the world.
The AFCP-AE will strengthen connections between American cultural preservation experts and the vast network of cultural heritage preservation professionals from around the world who have participated in one or several of the preservation projects funded through AFCP since 2001. It shall consist of a series of six regional workshops and one virtual global workshop focused on issues likely to face the cultural heritage preservation community over the next decade and the sharing of best practices to deal with the expected challenges. Foreign participants will include individuals from organizations that have implemented AFCP projects over the last 20 years who will be selected to represent a range of heritage types and contexts.
The anticipated key outcomes are the identification of shared values with respect to the preservation of cultural heritage, the establishment of a global AFCP network of cultural preservation professionals who have a positive view of the United States, and the promotion of U.S. leadership in international cultural preservation. The anticipated key outputs are career development and professional networking opportunities for U.S. and foreign preservation professionals, institutions, and organizations.
The overarching goals for the AFCP-AE are:
The AFCP-AE will support the development of workshops to provide AFCP alumni networking, skill-building, and other professional development opportunities. Program development and planning, carried out in cooperation with ECA/P/C and U.S. embassies, should begin in winter 2021 with implementation beginning in spring 2022. The AFCP-AE will consist of three components outlined below:
