Join us for a discussion with Patrick Dondelinger, Head of Research of Intangible Cultural Heritage for the Luxembourg Ministry of Culture.
According to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), intangible cultural heritage covers all the practices, representations, expressions, knowledge and skills – as well as the associated instruments, objects, artifacts and cultural spaces – that communities, groups and, in some cases, individuals recognize as part of their cultural heritage.
Patrick Dondelinger, Head Researcher of Intangible Cultural Heritage for the Luxembourg Ministry of Culture, will explore the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Luxembourg within the framework of the 20th anniversary of the 2003 UNESCO Convention for safeguarding the intangible cultural heritage.
