Needs Assessment Survey

The Intangible Cultural Heritage Office will be conducting a province wide needs assessment survey in the coming weeks. This survey will provide the ICH Office with information required to ensure we are effectively responding to community needs when it comes to the preservation, documentation and celebration of Newfoundland and Labrador's intangible cultural heritage. We hope to speak with a range of cultural institutions across the province such as archives, museums, heritage/historical societies, churches and community groups. By surveying these groups we hope to  find out which intangible cultural heritage projects they wish to take on and how the ICH office can offer assistance. Another goal of the survey is to highlight those aspects of intangible cultural heritage that are at risk of being lost. In order to prevent this loss from occurring, the survey also asks respondents what kind of ICH training and workshops they would find effective in their communities.

The survey will be conducted mainly over the telephone and will reach up too 100 cultural institutions from across the province.

However, if you are interested in providing us with input, please feel free to complete the survey here.
