Workshop “Intangible cultural heritage preservation”

Deadline: 02 September 2022 at 15:00 Kyiv time

In July, UNESCO inscribed the culture of Ukrainian borscht cooking on the List of Intangible Cultural Heritage in Need of Urgent Safeguarding. However, lots of other Ukrainian traditions, ceremonies, arts, and crafts are still endangered. Hop on the mission to safeguard them, and join the workshop. 

In two days, you will assess the state of intangible cultural heritage in your hromada and understand how to safeguard it. Iryna Kats, an expert on living heritage and cultural management, will be there for you. 

We will meet on 14-15 September in Zoom. Please make sure that you are available for four hours from 13:00 till 17:00 on Wednesday and Thursday. 

The workshop is part of Cultural Transformation Lab — a series of practical education and networking events aimed at supporting Ukrainian cultural managers, civil society and cultural actors residing outside of large cities and regional centres in times of war. 

The Lab is carried out by Goethe-Institut Ukraine in partnership with the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine. The programme is funded by the EU under the House of Europe programme.
