Middle East Photograph Preservation Initiative

The Getty Conservation Institute has joined with the Arab Image Foundation, the Art Conservation Department of the University of Delaware and the Photograph Conservation Department of The Metropolitan Museum of Art to form the Middle East Photograph Preservation Initiative (MEPPI).

MEPPI is a strategic initiative designed to gather information, raise awareness, and build capacity in the preservation of photograph collections throughout the Middle East - here defined as the countries of the eastern Mediterranean, North Africa, and the Gulf. The third in a series of courses will begin with a workshop that will take place in Amman, Jordan from 20-28 January, 2014. The deadline for application is 19 August, 2013.

Details about the course and the application process can be found here: http://www.meppi.org/blog/meppiamman2014courseannouncement
