During the third session of the Intergovernmental Committee (Istanbul, November 2008), an announcement was made of an expert meeting to be organized to discuss the role of culinary practices in implementing the Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage. The idea to organize a seminar on this issue was launched by the Delegation of Peru and supported by other delegations, including that of France, which proposed to hold the meeting.
The French Ministère de la culture et de la communication (Direction de l’architecture, Mission ethnologie) is organizing this seminar on 4 and 5 April, with the participation of UNESCO. The venue of the meeting will be the Documentation Center of the Maison des Cultures du Monde in Vitré (Ille-et-Vilaine).
The working language of the meeting will be French. The meeting is open to experts, with prior registration to Mr Christian Hottin (email@example.com). Considering the small size of the meeting room, the number of participants is limited to 35. Observers may register on the basis of available space.
