Headlines of Intangible Cultural Heritage

The proceedings of the international symposium "Heritage in Motion. Between Preservation and Devotion", held on 27 and 28 April 2017 at the Institute of Artistic Heritage (IRPA) in Brussels, have just been published.

On the initiative of the Cultural Heritage Directorate of the Ministry of the Federation of Wallonia-Brussels, this volume contains the papers that have fed, starting with Belgian, French and Spanish cases, into the general reflection on how to reconcile the opposing values governing the preservation of intangible manifestations and the movable heritage that is their responsibility. It also includes the transcript of the round table led by specialists from different backgrounds which closed the proceedings of the symposium.
