EXPLORING INTANGIBLE CULTURAL HERITAGE IN MUSEUM CONTEXTS
The ICOMOS-UK Intangible Cultural Heritage Committee is delighted to invite you to a launch of their report, funded by Arts Council England: Exploring Intangible Cultural Heritage in Museum Contexts.
A Pilot Project involving four museums on Innovative Approaches to Interpreting Collections in different settings and landscapes using Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH)
Thursday, 18th October 2018, 11.00am – 1.00 p.m.
to be introduced by Hedley Swain, Area Director, Art South East Arts Council England
FREE TO ATTEND – RSVP REQUIRED
The Report’s key findings highlight how ICH practicing communities – guardians of cultural traditions, collective memories, history, rituals and social practices – and the involvement of artists as intermediaries between the diverse bearer communities and cultural organisations to facilitate an equitable tri-partite curation, are vital to making collections and museum spaces alive and relevant to contemporary society, and why museums need to review and recast their physical and practical boundaries.
Venue: The Gallery, 75 Cowcross Street, London EC1M 6EL
The Pilot Project involved four museums: Hastings Museum & Art Gallery, Weald and Downland Living Museum, Museum of Cambridge, and Peterborough Museum and Arts Gallery, and a diverse range of communities in the South East Region.
The launch will be followed by light refreshments.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by the 16th October.
