The Iraqi Institute for Conservation of Antiquities and Heritage in partnership with MCI posted a series of YouTube videos titled Introduction to Fundamentals in Heritage Conservation in English, Arabic and Kurdish. The videos are an adaptation of on-site training the Smithsonian Institution (SI) has been doing since 2014. When Covid stopped on-site training, SI and the Iraqi Institute coordinated the production of the videos. Over 10 different videos, Iraqi cultural heritage sector colleagues explain what they do at their jobs and SI staff introduce the topics of heritage conservation taught at the Iraqi Institute. MCI's Jessica S. Johnson, Brian Michael Lione, and Katharyn Hanson, along with Smithsonian Cultural Rescue Initiative's Stacy Bowe are featured in the videos.
The Project was supported by the SI Office of International Relations and Smithsonian Enterprises with funding from the Getty Foundation.
