IMP Co-creations

The Intangible Cultural Heritage and Museums Project provides a creative impulse to all participating partner countries by offering (members of) ICH-communities, -groups or individual ICH-practitioners a forum, advice and financial support for setting up a contemporary (co-)creation or performance in interaction with a museum. The overall goal? To contribute to and stimulate the development of innovative practice experiences that, in the future, can offer inspiration for museums to engage in intangible cultural heritage!
