Abstract (in English)

From 3 to 7 November 2014, heritage managers from Cook Islands, Fiji, Samoa, Tonga and New Zealand, as well as experts from China and Japan, participated in a workshop aimed at addressing the fragile state of the Pacific region’s Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) with a primary focus on indigenous architecture and traditional building skills. The workshop was the result of the efforts of the Government of Samoa’s Ministry of Education, Sports and Culture (MESC) and the International Training Centre for Intangible Cultural Heritage in the Asia-Pacific Region under the auspices of UNESCO (CRIHAP). Collaboration throughout this workshop was the first step in the Pacific region towards establishing a regional network and strategy for the safeguarding of indigenous architecture and traditional building skills. Through the sharing of country profiles, expert materials, and reflections in group discussions, the workshop set the groundwork for formalizing an action plan that can guide and inspire the different sub-regions of the Pacific in their efforts to revitalize a fragile form of ICH.
