Andrew Jennings featured in Living Heritage podcast

Andrew was interviewed by Dale Jarvis, the Intangible Cultural Heritage Development Officer for the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, for his ICH Blog. 

Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) or what some call “Living Heritage” encompasses many traditions, practices and customs. These include the family events we celebrate, our community gatherings, the languages we speak, the songs we sing, knowledge of our natural spaces, our healing traditions, the foods we eat, our holidays, beliefs and cultural practices. Specific examples of our intangible traditions include—among many other customs, skills and practices—the Christmas mummering traditions, and boat building skills.

Dale and Andrew talked about ICH in Shetland and Andrew’s role with the Institute for Northern Studies and Shetland College UHI.
