Museums in Haiti
Of course it pales into insignificance when compared with the terrible human cost of the recent earthquake in Haiti, but some of us might be interested to hear of the fate of Haiti's museums and cultural institutions.
According to a message forwarded to the Museum-L listserv:
ICOM, together with its partner organisations of the International Committee of the Blue Shield (ICA, ICOMOS, IFLA, CCAAA) is working on the retrieval of information about the damages occurred at the cultural heritage in Haiti.
For more information see the Blue Shield website or follow the organisation's activities in Haiti on Facebook or Twitter.
ICOM's Disaster Relief for Museums Task Force is compiling a report that will be soon available online.
