A 3-part initiative:
MEPPI Survey: a collection survey to assess and identify significant photograph holdings across the Arab World, Turkey, Iran and Afghanistan
MEPPI Courses: a series of three courses that will train personnel responsible for the care of photographic collections in the region.
MEPPI Symposium: a symposium focusing on the photographic heritage of the broader Middle East for regional policy- and decision-makers.
The Arab Image Foundation, the Art Conservation Department at the University of Delaware, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Getty Conservation Institute are partners in this initiative.
The project is supported by a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and additional funding from the Getty Conservation Institute.
