The workshop on inventorying with the participation of communities under the 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage builds on the results of the workshop on the implementation of the 2003 Convention held in 2011 and aims to equip the staff of the Abu Dhabi Department of Tourism and Culture with knowledge and skills to design and facilitate an inventory approach based on the collective commitment and adapted to the particular situation of the communities. Facilitated by two members of the UNESCO’s facilitators’ network, the workshop will cover the themes of participatory inventory work under the 2003 Convention, possible frameworks for participatory inventory work, ethics and responsibilities, methods and techniques of inventorying, as well as a field practicum.
