Hi Tim,
I'm pretty sure Southwest University of Nationalities in Chengdu (Sichuan) would be interested.  Let me know if you'd like me to make enquires for you.

> it on a World Tour<that is, to display the exhibition in every country it
> represents, to give prominence to the endangered script and raise discussion
> about the importance of linguistic and cultural preservation.
> As things stand, the countries I¹d visit would be Indonesia, Canada, the
> United States, Vietnam, China, Liberia, Iraq, Israel, Mongolia, Guinea, Cote
> d¹Ivoire, the Philippines, Bangladesh and Morocco. Maybe one or two others.
> Needless to say, I can¹t afford that on my own. Hence this appeal.
> If you are at all interested in this endeavor, you could help in any of five
> or possibly six ways.
> * Please pass on this email to others you know with an interest in language
> preservation.
> * If you feel able to make a financial contribution to the general costs,
> you could go to 
> http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1496420787/the-endangered-alphabets-proj
> ect/. For every donation you get some kind of Alphabets-related reward as a
> thank-you.
> * If you know of a gallery, college, university, library or other
> institution in any of those countries that might want to host the Alphabets,
> please let me know by email.
> * If you know of any other endangered scripts in any other countries that
> you think I should visit, by all means make that suggestion.
> * If you know of funding agencies that might support my project, please let
> me know!
> * And if you happen to own an airline, please send me a ticket!
> Best wishes, and good luck with your valuable work.
