During the CIDOC 2023 Conference in Mexico an in person session of the CIDOC ICH Working Group will be organised on September 24, 2023, hosted by Workshop intangible heritage Flanders and ICOM Belgium Flanders. The CIDOC ICH Working Group envisions a trajectory towards developing an international standard for recording living heritage in museums’ collection management systems. The ongoing work of the Working Group is set up as an open invitation to the global community.
A series of pertinent and practical questions need to be addressed to grasp the layering of issues. We define three working pillars for this purpose. The first is a theoretical one that studies the need and gains for museums in integrating intangible heritage into their operations. The second and third pillars are then rather methodological: in what way is registration organised and what technical solutions exist or need to be developed to integrate this participatory process into museum systems. Here we aspire to come up with solutions for the richly diversified types of organisations. A standard can only be obtained by consensually addressing questions around ownership, collaborative engagement and integration of data.
A questionnaire is set up in order to collect insights and input on the topic of developing an international standard for recording living heritage in museums’ collection management system. The information obtained through the questionnaire will function as a starting point for further activities of the CIDOC ICH Working Group. What are your expectations for this type of standard? How do you envision your further participation in this trajectory? Do you have interesting case studies to share? Let us know by completing the questionnaire!
