Yemen from Jane Taylor Collection

CAORC is pleased to announce the call for applications for the Kaplan Responsive

Preservation Initiative (RPI).

The program is designed to aid in the preservation of the cultural heritage resources associated with multiple archaeological sites in countries within American overseas research centers’ networks.

For this application cycle, CAORC is actively encouraging proposals that seek to undertake emergency cultural heritage preservation and documentation efforts within Yemen.

Such preservation efforts may include conservation interventions for architecture and artifacts, on-site salvage work, documentation campaigns, as well as key presentation and management strategies in select situational contexts. The Responsive Preservation Initiative emphasizes the need to record, preserve, consolidate, and protect heritage sites that are in immediate danger or under urgent and critical threat.

The application deadline for this application cycle is June 1, 2018.

For more information and application instructions, view the RPI Call for Applications (also available in Arabic).
