Workshop on community-based inventorying for the safeguarding of intangible cultural heritage (ICH), within the project 'Strengthening the capacities of Suriname and the Dutch Caribbean Islands (Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, Saba, St Eustatius and St Maarten) for implementing the Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage.'
From 22 to 28 February 2015, community practitioners, as well as governmental and non-governmental experts, will gather in Curaçao for a workshop on community-based inventorying of intangible cultural heritage, with the primary aim to develop a framework for the inventory of their ICH. The core of the workshop will focus on community participation in the identification and definition of intangible cultural heritage, data collection, organization and management, laying the foundation not only for a 5-day field inventorying exercise to follow in the six respective islands, but also for future inventorying and safeguarding work.
