Vebinary “intangible cultural heritage and sustainable economic development in Latvian historical lands”

Latvian National Cultural Centre, in cooperation with THE UNESCO Cathedral of the Latvian Academy of Culture, calls for the “intangible cultural heritage and sustainable economic development in Latvian historical lands” On 8 November 2022, from 14.00 to 16.30 

It will be possible to learn about some national and international instruments designed to support the preservation of intangible cultural heritage and the economic development of local communities. It will be possible to find out what is supported by the National Cultural Capital Fund (CKF) and LEADER programmes and how the specific European Union registers protect local foods and whether in the future such registers could also cover artisanal products.

The vebinary is organized within THE framework of THE LIVIND cooperation project “creative living heritage as a resource for the northern dimension region” and will be able to hear the views of THE CKF, the Ministry of Agriculture and the Latvian Culture Academy (LKA) UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage Policy and Rights Cathedral, as well as the experience stories from Latvia.

If you want to receive a certificate of participation in a seminar, register by 6 November here!

Participation in the vebinary is free and accessible to anyone. We invite both non-governmental organisations, heritage masters and teachers, teachers, researchers, municipal and public institutions, cultural houses, museums and libraries and all interested in intangible cultural heritage!
