Madrasa al-Jaqmaqiya

As part of Project Anqa, CyArk, the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS), and Carleton University with funding support from the UK based charity, Arcadia Foundation, digitally documented Madrassa al Jaqmaqia. Responding to the catastrophic loss of heritage in the Middle East, the project seeks to further protect monuments through training local heritage professionals in digital preservation techniques. Along with the UNESCO Office for the Preservation of Syrian Cultural Heritage, CyArk trained Syrian heritage professionals in Lebanon to carry out the digital documentation of six sites in Damascus in 2016 and 2017.
