INTANGIBLE CULTURAL HERITAGE & MUSEUMS PROJECT
“From 2017 to 2020 the Intangible Cultural Heritage and Museums Project explores the variety of approaches, interactions and practices on intangible cultural heritage in museums.”
The Intangible Cultural Heritage and Museums Project is a three-year project in the context of Creative Europe’s cooperation projects (focus: capacity building – training and education & transnational mobility).
Project partners are:
From 2017 to 2020, IMP organizes international conferences and expert meetings in its five partner countries, focussed on providing its participants international, interdisciplinary exchange, learning and networking opportunities. The topic of these meetings concern the implementation of the principles of the participatory and future-oriented approach advocated in the UNESCO 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage, in current day museum practice and policy. How can museums engage in supporting practitioners of intangible cultural heritage, that wish to safeguard their practices, knowledge and skills for the future?
international conferences and expert meetings consist of keynotes, case presentations, debates, workshops focussed on the realisation of tools for museum professionals, Q&A’s with practitioners of intangible cultural heritage, et cetera. See www.ICHandmuseums.eu for more information and reports of previous events.

In the context of this project, we are looking for a skilled author/editor to coordinate the publishing of a book and executive summary. These publications will synthetize, evaluate and valorize the project’s outcomes, outputs and key findings. The publication is meant to inform and inspire its readers – main target audience: museum professionals – about safeguarding intangible cultural heritage in the context of museums. Next to introductory chapters on intangible cultural heritage in relation to European museum practice, you would be asked to write case descriptions on the basis of interviews, to (co-)develop methodological tools on ICH&museums, … et cetera. The realisation of the book will happen in close collaboration/consultation with members of the IMP-Steering Group and Think Tank and with previous participants to the project’s events: museum professionals and practitioners of intangible heritage that were involved.
The book and executive summary will be written in English. The executive summary will be translated into Dutch, German, French and Italian.
