This workshop is organised within the framework of the programme Strengthening national capacities for effective safeguarding of intangible cultural heritage in Cuba, in the Dominican Republic and in Haiti funded by the Intangible Cultural Heritage Fund thanks to the generous contributions of the Kingdom of Norway.
