Announcement: MEPPI Amman 2014 Photograph Preservation Course
18 August 2013
The Arab Image Foundation, the Art Conservation Department at the University of Delaware, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Getty Conservation Institute are happy to announce the launch of the third Middle East Photograph Preservation Initiative (MEPPI) course.
About the course
MEPPI courses are designed to provide basic theoretical and practical training in the care of a broad range of photographic materials found in the collections of museums, libraries, archives and other repositories.
The third MEPPI course will begin with an eight-day workshop at the National Library of Jordan in Amman in January 2014, and will be followed by a distance-mentoring period. It will conclude with a final meeting at the end of the course in late 2014.
There are no fees for attending the workshop or for participating in the mentoring and follow-up meeting. Travel, lodging, and per diem for the workshop and final meeting may be subsidized based on demonstrated institutional financial need. Funding requests will be reviewed individually.
