Red Monastery: Conservation and Training, Job Creation, Site Management, Community Awareness
Director: Michael Jones
The magnificent painted interior of the Red Monastery Church now cleaned and conserved by ARCE is an irreplaceable piece of Egypt's cultural heritage. To guarantee the sustainability and preservation of the Red Monastery Church, ARCE will implement a conservation and training field school, a site management plan, and a cultural awareness program. Each is aimed at safeguarding the site by respecting the multiple significances the church has for different groups, as a combination of living religious heritage in use and a very important historic monument.
