Communities Connecting Heritage Interactive
Communities Connecting Heritage
Communities Connecting Heritage (CCH) brings U.S. and international participants together to explore cultural heritage preservation through virtual and in-person exchanges.
The program is funded by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and administered by World Learning.
CCH matched U.S. organizations with partners in Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Egypt, India, and Serbia to collaborate on unique cultural heritage preservation projects.
After receiving exchange program training from World Learning, the partners carried out their own virtual and in-person exchanges over six months.
All 117 participants took part in the six-month virtual exchanges. Each partner also chose five participants for two-week, reciprocal exchanges with their international counterparts.
Each project culminated in a public exhibition to engage the wider community in cultural exchange through performances, presentations, art shows, and other activities.
