Folklore and Intangible Cultural Heritage in Scotland Event


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

This event investigated the issues and challenges facing curators, archivists, archaeologists, and community heritage groups working with intangible culture, and explore the potential, opportunities for promoting future collaboration, capacity building and support in Scotland. These videos will be useful for anyone with an interest in cultural heritage and folklore.
