Duration: 1hr 30 mins
What is intangible cultural heritage? Why is it important? How can it be protected? How can digital records of these practices help to pass them down to future generations?
A live online event co-organised by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media and the Digital Repository of Ireland as part of National Heritage Week 2021 takes place on Thursday 19th August at 7pm via Zoom.
Join Manchán Magan online for a lively evening of performance, exploration, and discussion on the theme of intangible cultural heritage.
A representative from the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media will speak about the development of the National Inventory of Intangible Cultural Heritage. Practitioners and performers from three performing arts will give insights into their practices and why they are important. The Digital Repository of Ireland will ask us to think about how the preservation of digital records can help to pass practices like these down to future generations. Manchán will then open the floor to questions, as you are invited to join with us in recognising and experiencing this important element of Ireland’s cultural heritage.
