Laying the groundwork for safeguarding intangible cultural heritage in Haiti
- Rara tradition in Léogâne
Organized with the support of the Intangible Cultural Heritage Fund, thanks to a generous contribution from Norway, the mission was composed of a UNESCO-trained expert, Ms Soledad Mujica from Peru, and the UNESCO Culture Programme Specialist in Port-au-Prince. The mission intended to provide an opportunity to gather around the same table the wide range of national and international stakeholders involved in safeguarding intangible cultural heritage in Haiti and pave the way for an effective and sustainable implementation of the 2003 Convention, beginning with the establishment of a solid institutional network.
