Safeguarding Nepal’s Intangible Cultural Heritage: Capacity Building To Start Next Week in Kathmandu
PDF File Size: 36 KB | Download   
Nepal’s traditions, performing arts, festive events and the skills of its people to produce traditional crafts are as precious as its many heritage buildings. But often, the capacity to safeguard this intangible heritage is low. UNESCO therefore initiates on 16 April a series of workshops on the implementation of the 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage, which Nepal has ratified in 2010. The first workshop in this capacity building initiative is being organized in Kathmandu from 16 to 20 April 2012 jointly by the Ministry of Federal Affairs, Constituent Assembly, Parliamentary Affairs and Culture and the UNESCO Office in Kathmandu.
The workshop will mainly focus on building capacity for Nepal to meet its obligation as a State Party to the Convention, which was adopted in 2003 by UNESCO’s General Conference. Some 40 participants from communities and groups that create, maintain and transmit intangible heritage as well as government
departments are expected to participate in the event. Next week’s workshop is the first among a series of training events over the next 18 months. The other workshops to follow are on community-based inventorying of intangible cultural heritage and elaborating nominations to the Intangible Cultural Heritage List.
