HERITAGEProgramming starts this Wednesday and aims to involve the Amazonian community in preservation actions

By the National Historical and Artistic Heritage Institute (Iphan)

The ten years of registration of the Traditional Agricultural System of Rio Negro is one of the themes of the Week of Cultural Heritage 2020, held between September 30 and October 2 by the National Historical and Artistic Heritage Institute (Iphan), an autarchy linked to the Ministry Tourism and the Special Secretariat for Culture. Seeking to involve the Amazonian community in actions to preserve Cultural Heritage in the state, the free event will consist of an online program, broadcast live and accessible on cell phones, tablets and computers. The Cultural Heritage of Amazonas extends through several municipalities in the state. It consists of listed buildings, such as those in the Historic Center of Manaus, but also registered cultural events, such as the Boi Bumbá Complex of the Middle Amazon and Parintins and the Iauarautê Waterfall, in addition to the archaeological sites protected by Iphan. These are the axes that will guide the Heritage Week program. Scheduled to take place in person, the event was adapted due to the emergency situation in public health resulting from the coronavirus pandemic. “We want to contribute to the dissemination of knowledge about the Cultural Heritage in Amazonas, promoting the integration of material and immaterial dimensions” the superintendent of Iphan-AM, Karla Bitar. “This is a way of bringing the population to debate the topic. The preservation and dissemination of Cultural Heritage depends fundamentally on the community, which daily experiences the culture of Amazonas. ”On the first day of Heritage Week, at 4:30 pm, the lecture“ Institution of Guard and the archaeological and paleontological collection of the Amazon Museum (Musa) ”, which will include the participation of archeologist Iberê Fernando de Oliveira Martins.
