First global meeting of category 2 centres active in the field of intangible cultural heritage

From 24 to 26 July, the Regional Centre for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage in South-Eastern Europe and UNESCO will organize for the first time a global meeting of category 2 centres active in the field of intangible cultural heritage at Sozopol, Bulgaria. The three-day meeting will focus on analysis and reports of leading specialists from UNESCO Headquarters, the Bureau of Strategic Planning and Regional offices of UNESCO in Venice, Bangkok and Havana. There will be also discussions about the problems in the implementation of the Convention /2003 / and opportunities for strengthening partnerships between category 2 centres.

The meeting will be an excellent opportunity for the participants to take stock of the recent developments in the life of the Convention 2003 and the larger trends underway at UNESCO concerning category 2 centres. Representatives of all category 2 regional centres for intangible cultural heritage in the world- Republic of Korea, Japan, China, Peru and Iran, with their colleagues from Bulgaria, will examine the strategy of UNESCO for the period 2014-2018 and the way forward for its implementation in the activities of category 2 centres.
