Support the Haitian Cultural Recovery Project
The Broadway League, including the Shubert Organization, and the Broadway community, stepped up to support the Haiti Cultural Recovery Project with its donation. Federal cultural agencies provided grants to the American Institute for Conservation to send conservators to Haiti to work on the project. The Smithsonian has used its staff expertise and time on the project.
The Haiti Cultural Recovery Project needs more support. Costs for the first year of operation are estimated at approximately $4 million. The Smithsonian has received $2 million in federal funds for the project; in addition, private donors have contributed about $500,000. Funds are needed for the operation of the Smithsonian’s Cultural Recovery Center, for sending expert conservators to Haiti, for training Haitian conservators, and for digging cultural treasures out of the rubble and preserving the rescued collections.
