The Living Heritage Entity presents the online event “Apply to the Fund of the 2003 Convention for the safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage” which will take place in March 2022.
The International Assistance mechanism lies at the very core of the 2003 Convention, as it enables an effective and sustainable way for safeguarding intangible cultural heritage (ICH). This mechanism provides dedicated financial and technical resources for States Parties to implement a wide range of projects for safeguarding ICH.
Three information sessions are organized to present the International Assistance mechanism of the 2003 Convention, the modalities and the process of application. In addition, the Toolkit for requesting International Assistance from the 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage will be presented. This guideline introduces key concepts of the Convention, the criteria for receiving funding and how to plan and monitor projects.
