Tools for Successful and Sustainable Documentaion

In August 2018, the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) hosted a top-class two-day symposium on “Archiving Intangible Cultural Heritage & Performing Arts”.

Numerous examples and research projects were used to explore the problems and opportunities of documenting ICH (Intangible Cultural Heritage).
