MGS participates in Intangible Cultural Heritage symposium
Jacob O’Sullivan, our Museum Development Manager – Collections & Interpretation, recently joined heritage sector professionals from across Europe for an International Visitors Programme research trip.
As part of the International Visitors Programme, Jacob attended the ‘Making (Intangible) Heritage Visible’ symposium. He delivered a presentation on ICH in Scotland and the role of ICH in Scotland’s Year of Stories.
He also joined ICH professionals for a range of tours and roundtable talks. The tours highlighted how museums, community groups, and organisations across the Netherlands use technology, workshops, and decolonising practice to explore ICH.
