From 4 to 8 November 2019, more than 20 intangible cultural heritage specialists are gathering in Oujda, Morocco, for a training of trainers workshop under the 2003 Convention’s global capacity-building programme. The workshop is being organized by the Living Heritage Entity with the generous support of the Agence de l’Oriental and in close collaboration with the UNESCO Rabat Office.

The workshop intends to strengthen and expand the Arab States chapter of the facilitators’ network to respond to the growing demand for capacity building in the field of intangible cultural heritage in the region.

The participants, coming from the fields of anthropology, heritage studies, archaeology and museums, will learn about the core concepts, methodologies and mechanisms of the Convention, and their new role as members of the global network. The sixteen new facilitators will contribute to reinforcing the safeguarding of intangible cultural heritage in the Arab States and ensuring the effective implementation of the 2003 Convention on the ground.
