Webinar and Online Strategic Meeting on Silk Roads Intangible Cultural Heritage Networking

A webinar and online strategic meeting on Silk Roads intangible cultural heritage (ICH) networking will be held on 18-19th November, co-organized by the International Information and Networking Centre for Intangible Cultural Heritage in the Asia-Pacific region under the auspices of UNESCO (ICHCAP) and the International Institute for Central Asian Studies (IICAS).

The webinar ‘Towards Reviving the Glory of the Silk Roads through ICH’ will focus on “Life, Environment, and ICH along the Silk Roads” and will explore topics such as humanity, the environment and the Silk Roads, the contributions of an ICH Network towards sustainable development, the viability and sustainability of ICH festivals along the Silk Roads, and artistic performances for the co-existence of humanity and nature.

The online strategic meeting on the Silk Roads ICH network will be divided into three sessions; ‘Case Studies on the Vitalization of the Silk Roads ICH: ICH Festivals & Sustainable Development’, ‘Cooperation and Solidarity for Operating the ICH Network along the Silk Roads’, and ‘Collaborative Work and Benefits through Activities of the Silk Roads ICH Network’. The strategic meeting will bring together representatives from international organizations from across Central Asia who will contribute to fostering an intangible cultural heritage (ICH) network along the Silk Roads.

The network aims to facilitate the exchange of information on integrated approaches to safeguarding ICH, develop a network of ICH festivals along the Silk Roads, establish a networking system along the Silk Roads to promote stakeholder information exchanges concerning ICH, and to accumulate ICH information along the Silk Roads to promote regional cooperation.
