The American Institute has just embarked on our first Kickstarter project with a target of $10,000 to fund production of a one-hour documentary, Digging History. Digging History will be the first of what we hope to lead to many documentaries that will be available as free, online educational resource for use to students and schools/universities, as well as anyone with an interest in learning more. Digging History is hosted and created by the AIRC team along with historians, archaeologists, videographers, historical and cultural experts and will bring viewers behind the scenes and learn about topics in art, archaeology, history, architecture, sustainability, conservation, religion and politics, from experts as they conduct their work, giving fun, accessible insights on the city and the people and events that shaped it, and continue to shape it.
As we have mentioned in other posts, we have already created several free, educational video podcasts in Rome and throughout Italy, made possible by partnerships with the Italian Ministry of Culture, and archaeological organizations AIAC and Fastionline. With this Kickstarter project, our long-term goal is to produce a huge amount of engaging content to become an online hub and focus for learning about all aspects of Roman culture. Please join us in our Kickstarted campaign– every contribution helps and each pledge is gratefully acknowledged and rewarded. All contributions are tax deductible.
