Co-organized by ICHCAP and the UNESCO Bangkok Office, participants and speakers hope to have a deeper engagement with ideas of building cooperation and networking initiatives among higher education institutions for ICH safeguarding from founded regional networks in Africa, Latin America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific. This session is a continuation of our efforts to have a better understanding of the integration between intangible cultural heritage and higher education, which visibly faces more challenges at the present time as the COVID-19 pandemic has necessitated measures directly affecting the operations of educational institutions all over the world such as school closure, instruction through online means, and disruption of research field work and other related activities.

The third session of the ICH Webinar Series primarily aims to examine the state of networking activities in different regions around the world, how networks were formed, how they operate and contribute to research and teaching about ICH, its safeguarding and transmission. These important concerns will be addressed by experts and representatives of now-established collaborative efforts based in four continents of the world, anticipated to edify notions of cultural diversity, different methods of solidifying connections for heritage protection, and academic unity in ensuring that living heritage is significantly a part of 21st century knowledge production.

Speakers include Dr. Christina Ortega Nuere (Former President of the European Network on Cultural Management and Policy), Dr. Jacob Mapara (Professor, Chinhoyi University of Technology), Prof. Mónica Guariglio (Coordinator, Network of Academic Cooperation in ICH of Latin America and the Caribbean) and Dr. Montira Horayangura Unakul (Cultural Officer, UNESCO Bangkok Office). Dr. Tim Curtis of UNESCO Headquarters and Director-General Adriana Molano Arenas of the Regional Centre for the Safeguarding of ICH of Latin America will formally open the session.

Session III will ascertain the implications of relevant higher education networks on the teaching of heritage, as well as the development of heritage in discourse and public consciousness.

The ICH Webinar Series in its entirety is free and open to the public. Interested parties should register through this link.
