ICH North Webinar - Music Collections, Ownership and Community involvement
Wed, 10 April 2023 14 – 16 CET (15–17 EET)

Following Unesco's Convention for safeguarding intangible cultural heritage (ICH), community participation is essential in any actions related to ICH. Also when it comes to music archives, it is essential to consider how communities are involved in deciding on appropriate use (or non-use) of the collections. However this may often still happen with lacking or incomplete community involvement in top-down processes by the archives or the collectors.
The webinar programme will include a presentation of the project and its aims, and a broader introduction to the concept of intangible cultural heritage (ICH). This is followed by examples of how to increase community involvement. In museums, projects on ICH and community involvement have already been implemented, thus we will also hear examples that can help and enhance our work with music collections.
The webinar is free and open for everyone, please invite your network to join.
