Online Workshop: Intangible Cultural Heritage

The international University of British Columbia (UBC) Centre for Cultural Planning and Development is offering a new session of an online professional development workshop: "Intangible Cultural Heritage" with Marilyn Truscott, Canberra, Australia.

Intangible Cultural Heritage includes the ‘practices, representations, expressions, knowledge, skills … that communities, groups and, in some cases, individuals recognize as part of their cultural heritage’ (UNESCO 2003:Article 2). UNESCO’s recognition of Intangible Cultural Heritage has led to questions about its identification, protection, and sustainability, the role of the associated community, and the connection of intangible heritage to tangible heritage—place and object.

This online workshop focuses on these questions and issues, combining theoretical discussion with practical examples. Participants will identify issues and critique intangible cultural heritage practices from around the world that may be applicable to other heritage management systems. A core question is how tangible and intangible heritage can be held together given the separation of these aspects of heritage in many jurisdictions.

Note: Case study reading will be international, yet also pertinent to the students' backgrounds.

Instructor: Marilyn Truscott, past president of Australia ICOMOS, and president of the ICOMOS International Committee on Intangible Cultural Heritage.

Three scheduled online sessions. Wed, June 10, 17 and 24 from 3pm-5pm PST/PDT.

Registration closes May 27, 2015

This workshop can be taken individually for professional development, or applied to the UBC Certificate in Cultural Planning - an international professional learning program delivered 100% online.
