Within the framework of the project “Strengthening national capacities for safeguarding intangible cultural heritage in Sudan”, generously funded by Abu Dhabi Culture and Tourism Authority, a 10-day assessment mission is organised to identify and analyse previous inventory activities in the field of intangible cultural heritage in Sudan. The mission will include a series of meetings and consultations as well as basic training sessions related to community-based inventorying as understood by the 2003 Convention.
During the mission, the priorities for the development of a strategy for inventory making will be set through group discussions with the various stakeholders concerned, including community representatives. The objective will be to update previous inventorying experiences, set up a knowledge management system and promote community-based participative approaches when inventorying ICH elements.
