Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) Podcast
Interview with Kristin Catherwood and Dale Jarvis, September 2016
In this episode Kevin is joined by Dale Jarvis and Kristin Catherwood who have been on tour through Saskatchewan offering guest lectures and workshops on Intangible Cultural Heritage and keeping our traditions alive. There is also some very entertaining conversation about hauntings, fairy tales, tall tales, and the mummers! Whether some of these legends are true isn't really the point. The interesting discussion is in how they have become interwoven into the fibre of our living Heritage.
Ingrid Cazakoff - Chair of New National Committee!
Interest in Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) is growing throughout the world, particularly as it draws attention to the role of living cultural heritage as a means of promoting sustainable development and the revitalization of communities. To date, 168 countries have signed on to the 2003 UNESCO Convention for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage and interest is growing to encourage Canada to join. The ratification of the Convention would stimulate interest in Canada for the safeguarding of ICH. Want to read more! Canadian Declarations (English & French).
