Endangered Alphabets Tour Needs Hosting

Dear Colleagues,

Ever since I began the Endangered Alphabets Project
(http://www.endangeredalphabets.com) two years ago, it was my
dream to take it on a World Tour-that is, to display the exhibition in
every country it represents, to give prominence to the endangered
scripts and raise discussion about the importance of cultural

As things stand, the countries I'd hope to visit would be Indonesia,
Vietnam, China, Liberia, Iraq, Israel, Mongolia, Guinea, Cote d'Ivoire,
the Philippines, Bangladesh and Morocco (plus others as the exhibition

I am currently fundraising to try to make this tour happen (details at
alphabets-project/), but in the meantime I need to find potential hosts
for the Alphabets exhibition.

If you know of a gallery, college, university, library or other institution in
any of those countries-or indeed any country outside North America)
that might want to host the Alphabets, please let me know by email.

Best wishes,

Tim Brookes
