Webinar: Collective singing as part of UNESCO's intangible heritage

Join us online on 29 March 2023 at 5:00pm (CEST-Central European Summer Time) to learn more on collective singing as part of UNESCO's intangible heritage!

As an introduction, Silja Fischer (Secretary General, International Music Council) will introduce the UNESCO definition and perspective on intangible cultural heritage and present some examples from the world of collective singing.

In the second part, Janis Ozols (International Baltic Sea Choir Competition) will speak about the Song Celebrations of the three Baltic States. Did you know that the Lithuanian, Latvian, and Estonian Singing celebrations have been declared UNESCO Intangible Heritage?

To conclude, Ieva Krivickaite (Lithuanian National Culture Centre) will introduce the Lithuanian Song Celebration, which will be marking its 100th anniversary in 2024. We will take a look at what constitutes the Celebration, learn about the relationship between the Celebration and Lithuania's independence, and find out what is planned for 2024.

The webinar is open to everyone and participation is free. Register here.

This event takes place in the frame of IGNITE, co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the EU.
