iSchool students are invited to attend two events hosted by the Ontario Heritage Trust that focus on Intangible Heritage on Wednesday 22 and December 7, 2017, in Toronto.
Together the dialogue and lecture will explore the challenges and successes of intangible heritage preservation initiatives throughout the province, guide stewardship of intangible heritage into the future, and help facilitate cross-cultural understanding and cultural fluency. The events are an invaluable learning and development experience. In particular, the dialogue panels will focus on identity and cross-cultural exchange, intangible cultural heritage and the digital age, and intergenerational transfer. There will be ongoing demonstrations from a variety of practitioners and performances by Nadine Williams and Nick Sherman.
