The Cultural Heritage Education Programme is a set of sessions revolving around the concept of ‘sustainable heritage’ by educating and encouraging young students to connect with their culture as well as the environment. These curated programs enable the younger generations to appreciate, understand and interpret the city. The programme encourages hands-on, cross-cultural, intergenerational learning about traditional crafts, knowledge and skills through interactions with residents, traders and artisans.
The program will deal with a variety of subject areas such as heritage, craftsmanship and language. The students would be asked to bring knowledge systems from their home and the facilitators will focus on teaching students the basics of research and presentation skills. The aim is to introduce the concept of maintenance and management of their knowledge systems and to understand why it is important to preserve it for the future.
This workshop is specially curated for the students of Kaveri High School and is not open to the general public.
