Folklore and Intangible Cultural Heritage in Scotland Event


In December 2021, the Folklore Museums Network, Historic Environment Scotland, and Museums Galleries Scotland hosted a collaborative online workshop looking at the identification, interpretation, and collection of Intangible Cultural Heritage. 

This event investigated issues and challenges facing curators, archivists, archaeologists, and community heritage groups working with intangible culture. The event also explored opportunities for promoting future collaboration, capacity building, and support in Scotland.
