In November 2018, The Land of Legends was adopted to the Unesco Register of Good Safeguarding Practice under the Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage. A core word in the Convention is sharing. During two days, folklorists, scholars, radio producers and storytellers will explore and share different ways to work with oral tradition in the past, present, and in the future.
Day one will be dedicated to the work that is carried through in the Land of Legends. Join us for a tour in the Land of Legends. Get a guided tour at the Museum and listen to interesting lectures on how we work to safeguard the Intangible Cultural Heritage of oral storytelling in schools, our plans to develop the Land of Legends and deepen the work with the Convention for the Safeguarding of ICH, and how a devastating storm was coped with through storytelling.
The seminar will be held in English.
