In continuing our discussion on the cooperative agreement between the U.S. Department of State and ASOR, known as the Syrian Heritage Initiative, we spoke with Syrian Heritage Initiative Director for Cultural Heritage Communications, Michael Danti. Our conversation included topics such as networking, cultural heritage monitoring, weekly reports, and how social media ties into the initiative. Take a listen and stay tuned for future podcasts when we talk with some of the other directors of the initiative on their roles in the project.
