Seminaari Migrants and living heritage

Migrants and living heritage

What is living heritage or intangible cultural heritage? What kinds of traditions do migrants bring or take with them? What do people want to keep and change? How to safeguard traditions? What could my community add to the Wiki-Inventory for Living Heritage? These issues will be considered in the speeches and workshops of the seminar at International Cultural Center Caisa.
