WEBINAR: Nordic Museums and Intangible Cultural Heritage (ENG)

Op 20 oktober werken we met Werkplaats immaterieel erfgoed mee aan het internationaal webinar 'Nordic Museums and Intangible Cultural Heritage', vanuit onze expertise opgedaan in het Europees project 'Intangible Heritage and Museums' 

WEBINAR: Nordic Museums and Intangible Cultural Heritage (ENG)

What is intangible heritage? How does the UNESCO 2003 Convention affect the work of museums in Nordic countries? How can our museum engage with intangible heritage, that is represented in their collections, lived by their audiences, embodied by their stakeholders? Who are the communities, groups and individuals museums could work with?

The webinar presents concrete tools for the museums to dive deeper into living heritage and engage more profoundly with the communities, groups and individuals related to it.  Furthermore, case examples from several Nordic museums will be heard. Interactive workshops with international professionals provide the participants with hand on tools to reflect on the work in their own museums.
