Cherry festival in Sefrou
20 May 2014 – From 20 to 27 May 2014 the city of Marrakesh is hosting its first training workshop on the preparation of a participative inventory of the intangible cultural heritage.

This training is part of a wider capacity-building programme for the safeguarding of intangible cultural heritage funded thanks to a generous contribution from Norway to the Intangible Cultural Heritage Fund. It follows on from a first workshop on the implementation of the 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage which was held in Agadir in March.

The primary aim of this meeting, which will bring together professionals in intangible cultural heritage, representatives of the Ministry of Culture, Craftsmanship and the Social and Solidarity Economy, non-governmental organizations, and students, will be to reflect on the role of communities in the preparation of inventories of the intangible cultural heritage, as well as on the techniques and methods required to implement these.

The workshop will be supervised and led by two members of the UNESCO facilitators network, Mr Mohamed Lemine Ould Beidjeu (Mauritania) and Mr Ahmed Skounti (Morocco).
