MOROCCO HOSTED A WORKSHOP ON HOW TO INVENTORY MAGHREBI ICH

Fine experts from Morocco, Tunisia and Mauritania gathered in Marrakech to discuss the creation of a participative inventory on their Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH). This workshop is part of a broader program that aims at promoting the purposes of the Convention for the safeguarding of ICH, and the consequent call to action in order to enforce it.

In the past years the Moroccan Ministry of Culture has been focusing its efforts on preserving and increasing the value of its national cultural heritage. The administration has therefore developed a plan of action, called “Patrimoine 2020”, which includes concrete programs for ICH protection, training, promotion and to raise awareness on this important issue.

The workshop held in Marrakech was fundamental to shine a light on components of Maghrebi traditions (such as songs, dances and craft skills) that have been neglected for too long and that risk to be forgotten. The idea is to start an inventory to simplify the realization of specific strategies based on each ICH peculiarity.
