TORONTO, Nov. 2, 2017 /CNW/ - Named by the National Geographic Society as one of the Explorers for the Millennium, Dr. Wade Davis has been described as "a rare combination of scientist, scholar, poet and passionate defender of all of life's diversity." Join the Ontario Heritage Trust and Dr. Wade Davis at the Isabel Bader Theatre for an evening lecture and performances on intangible cultural heritage, followed by a reception and a cash bar.
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. Intangible heritage is important in maintaining the diversity of our communities and building intercultural dialogue and understanding – and its significance is increasingly being recognized.
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.
