The Smithsonian Cultural Rescue Initiative (SCRI) works to protect cultural heritage threatened or impacted by disasters and to help U.S. and international communities preserve their identities and history. SCRI projects include cultural rescue work in Haiti, Syria, Iraq, Egypt, Mali, Nepal, and the U.S., as well as disaster training for heritage colleagues, first responders, and military personnel around the world. SCRI is currently working to develop disaster response plans for intangible cultural heritage. This meeting will serve as a forum to share ideas and case studies, and build relationships for future collaborations to protect ICH from the threats of disaster.
