Earthenware pottery-making skills in Botswana’s Kgatleng District

The elaboration of community-based inventories is at the heart of the Convention for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage and requires specific skills, which are, however, not always sufficiently mastered in countries that have ratified, including in Africa, a priority region for UNESCO. It is therefore urgent that the members of UNESCO’s network of trainers in Africa, which was set up to support the implementation of the Convention, have the pedagogical and methodological tools necessary to facilitate training in this area.
