Training of trainers’ workshop on intangible cultural heritage - Strengthening the network of facilitators in Africa

The Living Heritage Entity within UNESCO’s Culture Sector will organize in collaboration with the Regional Centre for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage in Africa (CRESPIAF), a training for trainers’ workshop in order to strengthen UNESCO's global network of facilitators in Africa. This workshop will take place from 9 to 13 July 2019 in Algiers, Algeria.

The workshop is part of the Global capacity-building programme for the effective implementation of the 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage. For five days, new network members, accompanied by experienced members, will be prepared for their role as facilitators and familiarized with training materials, so that they can in turn provide training and advisory services to States and communities.
Today, the network is composed of 135 facilitators around the world, of which 47 are in Africa. By including new facilitators, this workshop will not only serve to meet the high demand for capacity-building in Africa but also respond to the challenges in the implementation of the Convention.
