Heritage Education: Linking Future with the Past

Heritage is anything that is important enough to be conserved and passed on to future generations. It includes cultural heritage — which refers to such aspects of life like traditional practices and craft forms, language, folklore and other cultural activities that need to be preserved for new generations. These things connect us with different sets of values, beliefs, religions and customs and help us understand our country and its history better.
At the core of any initiative to preserve such traditions is the need to nurture and propagate them among youngsters. Education plays a key role here, especially in transmission of cultural values, including passing of knowledge and information.
In 2015, banglanatak dot com undertook a Heritage Education Programme in 21 schools and 5 colleges of Kolkata, 6 schools of Delhi, and in collaboration with Alliance Francaise in Goa. The aim was to give the participants an opportunity to understand the historical and geographical nature of their states. A key element of the project was training the teachers to help them formulate methodologies to incorporate cultural components in the curriculum.
The initiative in Kolkata attracted 4,000 students. The participants were introduced to the concept of intangible cultural heritage and how it is connected to the various performing arts and the artisans in the craft hubs of West Bengal. They were also helped to recognize contemporary traditions that affect our present and would influence our future. Overall, it was an attempt to make the youngsters understand the heritage elements that form the identity of the Indian civilization.
In Delhi, a workshop on Natural Colour Making was at the core of the programme that was attended by 650 students. They were shown process videos of various craft forms and introduced to the products. The students took immense interest in the videos and expressed their desire to visit the craft villages in future to get a first-hand experience of the artisans’ work and their lifestyles.
In Goa, two traditional Clay Doll artists held a workshop with 17 participants where they shared the technique of making hand-moulded clay dolls.
