Conference on Intangible Cultural Heritage in Paraguay

Conference on Intangible Cultural Heritage: Towards an intersectoral development of public policies will take place at the Library and Central Archive of the National Congress of Asunción (Paraguay) in the coming 19 and 20 August.

UNESCO Montevideo, together with the National Secretariat of Culture of Paraguay, the Regional Center for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Latin America (CRESPIAL), and with the support of the Network of Academic Cooperation in Intangible Cultural Heritage for Latin America and the Caribbean (ReCA PCI LAC), organize this event which focuses on the intersectoral nature of intangible cultural heritage and the strengthening of capacities in intangible cultural heritage within the country.

The conferences are opened to the public in these two days. More than twenty experts from the region will discuss in five panels about the possibilities of working in Intangible Cultural Heritage in the sectors of agriculture, education, tourism, creative industries and on the role of youth in the promotion and work in intangible heritage.

The presence in the country of experts from the region will be an opportunity for holding parallel working meetings with different government institutions. In this regard, the Network of Academic Cooperation in Intangible Cultural Heritage of Latin America and the Caribbean (ReCa PCI LAC), created in 2017 under the sponsorship of UNESCO Montevideo and CRESPIAL, will make an official presentation at the Faculty of Architecture, Design and Art of the National University of Asuncion in the afternoon on August 19 to promote its lines of action with different universities of the country.

At the same time, on 19, 20 and 21 August, there will be three training workshops on safeguard plans, community management and inventory development held with officials from the National Secretariat of Culture and technicians from municipalities and governorates in charge of work agendas in intangible cultural heritage.
