Practical conservation training in Acre, Israel

"Saving the Stones", based in historic Acre, Israel, is an
English-taught five month training program in conservation and
historic preservation for students and young professionals from
around the world. The program provides hands-on experience in
conservation and restoration of historic sites.

Held at the campus of the International Conservation Center in the
inscribed UNESCO World Heritage Site of Old Acre, Saving the Stones
is run in partnership with the Israel Antiquities Authority and the
Israel National Committee to UNESCO.  Acre is a historic port city
on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, and is home to remains of
world cultures including the Hellenistic, Roman, Mamluk, Crusaders,
Ottoman Empire, and the British Mandate.

The program includes three intensive months of conservation and
historic preservation studies (theoretical and practical) in Acre,
one month of conservation in Jerusalem (in David's Tomb and the
Western Wall's Tunnels) and one month of a final personal research
or practical project in Acre, during which the knowledge acquired on
the program is applied. Throughout their training, students work
alongside conservation specialists, archeologists, and architects of
the highest professional and academic level.

Coupled with study tours to sites throughout Israel, and local
cultural and social activities, Saving the Stones is the perfect
opportunity for someone interested in learning more about the
heritage preservation as well as the Land of Israel and the historic
civilizations that influenced the development of this land.

Generous grants are provided, according to eligibility, by MASA
Israel Journey and the International Conservation Center.

The upcoming session commences in October, 2012 and there limited
spaces still available.
