The National Cultural Heritage Institute of Angola and UNESCO jointly organize a workshop on the implementation of the 2003 UNESCO Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage at national level. The workshop, which will take place from 9 to 13 November 2015 in Luanda, will discuss the scope and objectives as well as the obligations of the State Parties under this international legal instrument.

As part of UNESCO’s global strategy aiming to enhance national capacity for safeguarding of living heritage in the Portuguese speaking countries in Africa (PALOP), the workshop will gather some 20 Angolan participants, including stakeholders from local to national levels. With the aim to strengthen regional cooperation among PALOP countries, the training will be entirely facilitated by two Mozambican experts who have been previously trained through the same programme.

This workshop is made possible thanks to the generous contribution from the Government of Norway to the Intangible Cultural Heritage Fund.
