Session 7: Intangible Heritage

In the face of growing globalization, intangible cultural heritage has become an important factor in maintaining cultural diversity. An understanding of the intangible cultural heritage of different communities helps with intercultural dialogue, and encourages mutual respect for other ways of life. But how can cultural institutions help children access this fragile form of cultural heritage?

Speakers from diverse cultural backgrounds share their unique takes on rendering intangible cultural heritage more tangible for children.
