As this project is a one of a kind experiment in Ethiopia and it has not been proposed or applied before, a detailed pilot year has been created in order to test and evaluate the proposed steps before implementing them in an official training course. This would let the organizers better know the magnitude of the project challenges in the area and to learn from the ground experience. The pilot year consisting of workshops will be created together with experienced art conservators, local authorities and governmental support. After all, the project should be answering the Ethiopian needs created for students that will be able to actually apply their education in the Ethiopian field of cultural heritage. Great art conservation starts with great art conservation management, therefore the first and most important provided workshop will entail all assets of art conservation and a cultural approach towards diplomacy, tourism and conservation.
