The Antiquities Coalition and the Egyptian Heritage Rescue Foundation Offer Free Virtual Training on Manuscript Preservation
April 2, 2021
The Antiquities Coalition and the Egyptian Heritage Rescue Foundation have organized a free capacity building virtual training session on manuscript preservation, sponsored by our partners at the U.S. Embassy in Algiers. Mr. Abdelhamid Salah, EHRF chairman and expert trainer, will lead a training session on manuscripts with EHRF’s experts, Amira Sedik and HebatAllah AbdelHamid, including information about conservation, stabilization, and how to prepare for inventory and digitization.
The session will be held in Arabic on April 10 at 10:00 a.m. New York (3:00 p.m. Algiers, 4:00 p.m. Cairo) and is open to experts, librarians, and interested members of the public who are working in the field of cultural heritage preservation in the Maghreb.
This training is a direct result of a recent AC three-day virtual conference sponsored by the U.S. Embassy in Algiers in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture and the Arts of the People’s Democratic Republic of Algeria, on digitization and cultural preservation in the Maghreb region. Over three one-hour sessions, this forum convened national officials, librarians, and heritage experts for a discussion of the challenges and opportunities facing Maghreb countries as they digitize their irreplaceable cultural materials.
