ICICH members are invited to submit an abstract for the colloquium that ICICH is holding with the Australia ICOMOS National Committee on Intangible Cultural Heritage on 3 October 2020 at the Sydney Opera House as part of the ICOMOS General Assembly in Sydney this year.

The topic for the colloquium is Intangible Cultural Heritage: Shared Issues at Place – we look forward to papers exploring issues and examples related to:
• How diverse intangible heritage is expressed in shared urban spaces?
• What is it like to bring a community’s intangible heritage to a new place, such as to a new country or from a rural area to a city?

Papers at the colloquium will assist ICICH and the national ICH committees to understand the state of ICH practice across ICOMOS. As such, with speakers’ agreement, we will also be publishing the papers on the ICICH and national committee websites.

Would you please forward your abstract of 200 words in English or French or Spanish by 7 February 2020 to:
