European Meeting: Exchange on the Implementation of the Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage

19/21-06-2013 Vienna (Austria)

On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the adoption of the Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage and in order to increase the international visibility of the common living heritage, the Austrian Federal Ministry for Education, the Arts and Culture and the Austrian Commission for UNESCO host a European meeting of exchange in Vienna. The three-day meeting is designed as an open space for reflection on the implementation of the Convention since its adoption in 2003 and further possibilities of cooperation (i.e. multinational nominations). In line with this year’s thematic focus on the implementation of the Convention in Austria the meeting will provide specific incentives on Traditional craftsmanship by short presentations and a field trip to one of the traditions of the Austrian Inventory of the Intangible Cultural Heritage. Within a dynamic format the meeting should deepen European cooperation and contribute to future projects for safeguarding the intangible cultural heritage.
