Liberia to Host 2-Day Workshop on Cultural Property

first_imgThe Ministry of Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism (MICAT) will hold a two-day workshop to create awareness on the importance of the ratification of the Convention for the Protection of Cultural Property in the event of armed conflict.The workshop is in continuation of a process that started in 2012 when the Ministry, with the United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization’s (UNESCO) technical support and through broad consultation with civil society institutions prepared an initial draft. According to a release, the workshop is organized in collaboration with the UNESCO Multi-Sectorial Regional Office in Abuja, Nigeria.The convention was adopted in The Hague in 1954 in the wake of the massive destruction of cultural heritage sites and artifacts during World War II, to help preserve property in the midst of conflicts.It is the first international treaty with a worldwide focus exclusively on the protection of cultural heritage in the event of armed conflicts.The two-day workshop will be held on May 27-28 at a resort in Monrovia under the theme, “Awareness to Protect Our Cultural Property in the Event Of Armed Conflict.”Participants will include representatives from the various government ministries and agencies, the National Commission on Higher Education, National Legislature, and civil society organizations.The participants will provide their collective and individual perspectives to the draft law in line with the principles and provisions of the 1954 Convention for the Protection of Cultural Property in the event of armed conflicts and the need for the draft law to be ratified by Liberian authorities. Once finalized, the draft law will be submitted to Liberian authorities for endorsement.The law will be used to safeguard and together with the participatory process, through which it emerged, demonstrate the strong commitment of national authorities to ensure the viability of Liberia’s heritage, said the release.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Aaron Pritchett concert fundraising for Peace Island Park Pavilion

first_imgAs for the concert next month, doors open at 7 p.m. that night, and the show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $70 for general admission, $75 for reserved seating, and $80 at the door. FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – An Aaron Pritchett concert at the Lido Theatre on May 28 is not just a show, but a fundraiser to make Peace Island Park Pavilion a reality.The Pavilion is a project that a Project Management Class from UNBC has spearheaded. One of the students, Clayton Neumeyer, says a need for a bandshell-like structure nearby was something the community has voiced.“If you look around, other communities that cherish their parks and areas, most of the prized parks will have a permanent structure to host events,” he said.- Advertisement -Though no final decisions have been made, of course, there is a idea of how the structure would look and the features it would have. According to the website for the project, it would likely be the size of an ice rink and host about 400 to 500 people, and be built out of steel or lumber to prevent vandalism.There are plans to possibly implement a firepit, and utilities as well as full-service washrooms.Some organizations have already donated to the project, but a GoFundMe campaign has been started to accumulate more funds. According to that campaign, at least $10,000 is needed for the project.Advertisementlast_img read more
