At 16.COM in Paris, the #HeritageAlive Editorial Board chose “Storytelling” as the topic for the next book in the Living Heritage Series. The new book will be published collaborated with ICHCAP and will be ready by the end of 2023 to be presented at 18.COM.

The main purpose of the articles is to reflect NGOs’ and experts’ experiences in the field while working on projects related to storytelling. Rather than solely presenting an ICH element, the articles should reflect the challenges, methodologies, and experiences in safeguarding and transmission and in the spirit of the 2003 Convention to emphasize the element’s social and cultural function for a group or community. In other words, the submitted text must be about the achievements in safeguarding ICH through specific projects or activities (the evolution of a given situation). As the main purpose of organizations is to share experiences from the field, the articles shall preferably be made by, or in cooperation with, the NGOs and practitioners concerned. All NGOs are encouraged to contribute.

As mentioned, under the theme ‘Storytelling,’ the article should be written in English or French with 1,500 to 2,000 words. The deadline is 1 October 2022. Please submit to (Eivind Falk, Editor-in-Chief) with a copy to (Antoine Gauthier). For more information, please see the attachment.

Separately, the Call for Papers for 2022 Living Heritage Series: Water is still open (~11 June 2022).
