The Intangible Cultural Heritage workshop participants now feel “more confident” to train field workers in the collection and recording of living documentaries focusing on the Cook Islands peu karioi (performing arts).

The workshop held earlier this month ran for eight days. Steered by Tauranga Vananga Ministry of Cultural Development, the workshop is the first step in the Intangible Cultural Heritage “Peu kite karape papa akamou korero o te Ipukarea” – the collection of cultural knowledge. The workshop was made possible through the funding received from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation or UNESCO.
