Cultural Heritage: from research to market 0 Reply

cultural heritage from research to market


For UNESCO, the term cultural heritage encompasses several main categories of heritage: tangible (movable, immovable and underwater), intangible (oral traditions, performing arts, rituals) and natural (natural sites with cultural aspects such as cultural landscapes, physical, biological or geological formations) as well as heritage in the event of armed conflict.

Culture has the power to transform societies and through its diverse manifestations our lives are enriched. In this sense, cultural heritage is a source of identity and cohesion for communities, social change and economic stability. Creative and cultural heritage contribute to develop open, inclusive and pluralistic societies. Cultural heritage is also a source of knowledge.

Dialogue Café Evora | FEA proposes to organise a session on cultural heritage to share knowledge and professional experience in the field of cultural heritage (real estate, mobile and immaterial) with the objective of reflecting on the transfer of knowledge produced from research to the areas of conservation, promotion and innovative transformation of heritage taking into account its sustainability and the sustainability of the community to which it refers.

The session will take place on 18 April 2019 from 15h to 17h London time and will bring together experts, authorities, civil society and academia representatives to discuss and share concrete knowledge.

Crafting cultural heritage: how to promote intercultural dialogue and diversity through traditional crafts 0 Reply

A new generation of practitioners have espoused the “handcraft” movement propelled by these uniquely skilled independent designers and artists. Some of them look to history to nurture their making and provide an added value to their creations, the value of preserving knowledge and cultural heritage. Most of them become inspired by their own culture, other prefer to drink from other continents. At the same time, we share a rich cultural heritage as a result of centuries of exchange and migratory flows. Promoting cultural diversity is essential for contributing to economic and social cohesion.

In the framework of the cycle Global Exchange of Crafts Makers, a third global conversation on “Crafting cultural heritage: how to promote intercultural dialogue and diversity through traditional crafts” will be held next 29 September 2016 from 16h to 17h30 (London time) between Dialogue CafĂ© Évora, Dialogue Cafe Novi Pazar, Dialogue CafĂ© Lisbon and Dialogue Cafe Rio de Janeiro.


DC Cycle 2016 - Global Exchange of Craft Makers S1 - 01


During this session, participants will debate the intercultural bridges artisans might develop by inspiring their crafts product of different cultures and from different heritage.

How artisans look to their own cultural heritage? In which ways artisans provide innovation to their products? How artisans look to the possibilities of being inspired from other cultures and heritages? Is there a space for cultural diversity in the artisan market?
