This workshop is the third installment of CRIHAP’s three-year capacity-building workshop series on ICH safeguarding for the Philippines. In November of 2019 and 2020, CRIHAP and NCCA co-organized two well-received training of trainers workshops on ICH safeguarding in the Philippines. The 2019 workshop dealt with the implementation of the 2003 Convention for the safeguarding of ICH while the 2020 workshop focused on Safeguarding of the Viability of Intangible Cultural Heritage Amid Pandemic in the Context of Sustainable Development.
This year’s workshop is designed to help Philippine ICH practitioners to enrich their body of knowledge on capacity-building for ICH safeguarding in the Philippines, to strengthen the country’s capacities in ICH safeguarding and policy development, to push forward ICH safeguarding and the sustainable development of local communities.
NCCA is paying intense attention to the training. Marichu G. Tellano spoke highly of the efforts CRIHAP has made over the years to organize capacity-building workshops on ICH safeguarding for the Philippines. Tellano said she is truly thankful to CRIHAP for holding workshops that meant a great deal for the Philippines.
