The UNESCO Bangkok Office will host the Memory of the World Regional Workshop on Joint Nominations from 20-21 June 2019 in Bangkok, Thailand.
The workshop aims to:
- Increase participants’ knowledge on UNESCO’s Memory of the World programme and inscription criteria and processes to the International and Regional Registers,
- Build capacity for transnational joint nominations of new documentary heritage to the Regional and International MoW Registers, and
- Promote regional cooperation through documentary heritage and Memory of the World programme.
Participants will be from memory institutions, private collection holders or individuals in the Asia-Pacific region who have previously identified collections of documentary heritage for the purpose of joint nominations across several countries.
If you are interested to participate, please complete the participation form (link below) and send it to Ms Misako Ito, Adviser in Communication and Information, UNESCO Bangkok (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 10 May 2019, indicating whether you require travel support or not. Selection will be made based on the proposal of joint nominations as well as available funding.
UNESCO will provide the lunches and coffee breaks to all participants of the training. However, as the funding for travel is limited, participants are encouraged as much as possible to seek travel support to their own institutions or UNESCO field offices in Asia and the Pacific.
