In March 2017, U.S. Embassy Libya hosted a cultural heritage and civic engagement workshop in Tunis to help young people in Libya better understand cultural heritage protection. Former Deputy Chief of Mission Helen LaFave joined Libyan teachers, scouts, and girls guides leaders at the workshop. President and Chief Instigator of the American museum exhibit company POW!, Paul Orselli, taught the participants how to create innovative exhibits that engage young people in order to teach them about Libyan culture heritage. At the end of the workshop, the participants applied what they learned and created a “Pop-Up” Museum of Libyan culture, featuring exhibits that the participants created with found objects and artifacts they brought with them from Libya.
