US Announces Iraq Museum Fellowship Residencies Program

The Educational and Cultural Affairs Bureau of the U.S. Department of State and the United States Embassy in Baghdad has announced the 2012 Iraq Museum Fellowship Residencies Program.

This program has been developed to provide future Iraqi museum professionals with the opportunity to develop and build their capacity in museum management and operation.

The residencies will provide young Iraqis direct experience with the new techniques and technology in the field; offer opportunities for interaction with U.S. museum professionals; familiarize participants with private/public partnerships and volunteerism; and give the participants firsthand exposure to U.S. society and culture and to the diversity of cultural expression in the United States.
