Site Preservation Conservation and Museum Enhancement Pogram (2009-2014)
A BRIEF HISTORY
by Emil Nankov (ARCS)
Designed in collaboration with the Field Museum in Chicago, SPCME has grown out to be one of the most popular programs developed by ARCS since 2009. In principle, the program funds projects that concern archaeological sites and museum collections in Bulgaria, fostering the development of Bulgarian economy and cultural tourism, in particular. Specifically, the program encourages site preservation, artifact restoration, museum exhibitions, and infrastructural enhancement, with an emphasis on projects that have a strong community outreach, educational and innovative components.
