TORONTO, Nov. 1, 2017 /CNW/ - Join the Ontario Heritage Trust as we explore the preservation of living expressions of our identity. Hosted at the Artscape Wychwood Barns in Toronto, this full day session will feature discussion panels, performance arts, interactive demonstrations, culinary traditions and more.
Intangible cultural heritage is an elusive but fascinating topic – it includes oral traditions, performing arts, social practices, rituals, festive events, knowledge and practices concerning nature and the universe and the knowledge and skills to produce traditional crafts. On November 22, practitioners, proponents and stakeholders from a variety of backgrounds will share perspectives and engage in an interactive dialogue on intangible cultural heritage and its increasing significance to heritage conservation.
The Ontario Heritage Trust serves as the heritage trustee and steward for the people of Ontario. In this capacity, it conserves provincially significant cultural and natural heritage, interprets Ontario's history, educates Ontarians and celebrates the province's diversity. In 2017, the Trust is celebrating 50 years of service to Ontarians.
