SHARING CULTURES - INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON INTANGIBLE HERITAGE
|Sharing Cultures Conference aims at pushing further the discussion on Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH), under the main topics proposed by the UNESCO Convention adding some new field of discussion, namely on what concerns management and promotion of ICH, educational matters and musealization.
The concept of ICH gained its rightful place among the scientific community during the last two decades and a significant amount of work has been done by a large number of researchers, academics and practitioners, leading to the recognition of ICH as fundamental piece for the comprehension of human societies, organisations and ways of living. Accordingly, scientific events that gather scholars, researchers and academics with on-going work on ICH are privileged moments to share experiences, problems, questions and conclusions. Sharing Cultures aims at consolidating its rightful place among those events.
Topics of this Conferece are: Oral traditions and expressions; Performing arts; Social practices; Traditional craftsmanship; Management and promotions of intagible heritage; Authenticity of intangible heritage; Intangible heritage and education; Ecomuseums, comunity museums and living communities.
