What traditions are at risk in your community?

Last week I promised to unveil a new ICH project. Here it is:

Back in 2008 and 2013 we asked community members, organizations and groups interested in NL heritage and culture to share their thoughts on the needs of communities in safeguarding local intangible cultural heritage. Here in Newfoundland and Labrador, this living heritage is everything from the Christmas mummering traditions to, depending on where you're from in the province, flummies, tiffins or toutons!

One of the common threads in these past reports was a concern for the traditions, skills and knowledges that are at risk of being lost. We hear you! So, in the spirit of safeguarding the intangible cultural heritage of Newfoundland and Labrador we came up with a short survey (3-5 minutes) based on what people have identified as at risk. Help us identify the intangible cultural heritage that is at risk in your community! We want to hear from you!

The survey will be open to everyone beginning February 17th until March 24th at 5:00pm. The report will be made available to the public when the project is complete.

To take the survey, please visit the ICH Risk link on the main page of the blog.
