Heritage Management Training in Erbil, Iraq
In 2013, WMF developed a heritage management program for Kurdish and Iraqi professionals that stemmed from its long-running commitment to Babylon. Sponsored by the Ambassador’s Fund for Cultural Preservation, the program brought U.S. faculty members to an Iraqi preservation context to teach, exchange knowledge and ideas, and consider how best to equip local stakeholders with the capacity to preserve their own heritage in the years to come. WMF is pleased that the program is continuing through 2014.
