Coptic Culture Conservation Collective

The Coptic Culture Conservation Collective (CCCC) initiative will create a narrative and visual archive of contemporary Coptic intangible cultural heritage (ICH). By identifying, capturing, and documenting Coptic ICH, the project will also build local communities' repertoires, and capacity for long term heritage preservation, and through the project, and its associated outputs, make development practice more culturally aware and embedded. The project will use education and advocacy to promote the institutionalization of the protection of intangible cultural heritage so as to ensure the sustainability of the work well after its completion.
