From 2 to 6 September 2018, the UNESCO Regional Bureau for Sciences in the Arab States will be holding a 5-day training of trainers workshop in Cairo to provide technical and educational tools to teaching staff and national trainers working in the field of intangible cultural heritage so that they can themselves conduct training at national level in their universities or institutions. This training is a part of the 24-month project “Strengthening national capacities for safeguarding Intangible Cultural Heritage in Egypt for Sustainable Development” generously supported by the Abu Dhabi Tourism and Cultural Authority (ADTCA) of the United Arab Emirates.
The workshop is addressed to 25 participants from various departments of the ministry of culture, as well as museums, universities and community associations. It is intended to equip participants with basic knowledge and skills to design and facilitate a community-based inventorying process tailored to their particular circumstances. Furthermore, it provides participants with the opportunity to share information about personal and country experiences in the field of intangible cultural heritage.
