This combination online and in-person training program is designed for cultural heritage professionals in Georgia who want to better prepare their institutions for disasters and join a network of trained experts in the state to help others.
The Foundation for Advancement in Conservation (FAIC) received funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to train a regional cultural emergency response team in Georgia as part of their continued support of the national Alliance for Response program. The Heritage Emergency Response Alliance (HERA) and the Savannah Heritage Emergency Response (SHER) are pleased to partner with the FAIC to support this training which starts early 2020 with an online course component followed by an in-person scenario training session in Savannah on April 22 and 23, 2020.
Professionals with experience with natural, cultural and historical collections are encouraged to apply. Please view https://faic.secure-platform.com/a/solicitations/login/1122 for access to the application portal. There is no cost for attending, but there is a selection process and attendance is limited. Participants traveling from outside of Savannah are eligible for a travel stipend of up to $400.
Application Deadline Extended! Now December 6, 2019
