During the Expert meeting on 'Intangible Cultural Heritage, Museums and Participation' participants are provided the opportunity to reflect profoundly about the meaning of participation of ICH-practitioners (communities, groups and individuals) in museum practice and policy. Who are those 'communities, groups and individuals'? What inspiring practices have been developed in museums across Europe and what can we learn from them? How can the safeguarding measures for intangible cultural heritage be developed in a profoundly participatory manner?
Read the position paper 'Living museums for Living Intangible Cultural Heritage' written by Valentina Lapiccirella Zingari, Rosario Perricone and Pietro Clemente (SIMBDEA).
