Diplomacy Classroom: Sharing Cultural Heritage
April 13 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT
Join us in celebrating World Heritage Day with the Cultural Heritage Center at the U.S. Department of State. Martin Perschler and Erin Leckey of the Cultural Heritage Center will discuss the U.S. Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation (AFCP) and how it shares American values with the world through heritage preservation.
Now in its 20th year, AFCP supports projects to preserve a wide range of cultural heritage in foreign countries, including historic buildings, archaeological sites, ethnographic objects, paintings, manuscripts, and indigenous languages, and other forms of traditional cultural expression.
