Intangible Cultural Heritage Collections in Museums - A Workshop in Trinity, NL

1:00 – 4:30 pm
Friday, October 12, 2012
Trinity, NL

Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) is also known as “living heritage” and it encompasses many traditions, practices and customs of a group. These can include the stories we tell, the family events we celebrate, our community gatherings, the languages we speak, the songs that we sing, knowledge of our natural spaces and our healing traditions. In this workshop participants will learn how to document ICH and living traditions in their community, support and encourage the passing on of knowledge and skills, how to digitize this material for easier access, and explore the potential of ICH as a resource for community development.

Instructor: Dale Jarvis, Intangible Cultural Heritage Development Officer
