What we hold on to: Memories from home – Spring 2017

This event seeks to explore the state of Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) in the Middle East and North African (MENA) region, in the context of the current migration crisis. Taking oral tradition and performing arts as our main focus, this event aims at creating awareness about the importance of preserving and protecting the different forms of ICH that refugees have brought with them from their home country to the Netherlands.
