Workshop On Liberia’s Cultural Heritage Ends

By Comfort Johnson, Intern

MONROVIA, Feb 28 (LINA) -A three-day workshop on preparedness and response to safeguard Liberia’s cultural heritage has ended with a call for government to ensure that Liberian students fully celebrate the nation’s Flag Day.

The workshop participants also want the government to protect the country’s cultural heritage by making sure that Liberians respect their cultural values.

Speaking at the closing ceremony Friday, the Assistant Minister for Culture, Madam Louise Macmillan, regretted that Liberians have down-played their own culture and continue to emulate Western culture.

She said risk preparedness for the protection of cultural heritage is important because disaster can strike at any time, irrespective of weather conditions.

Minister Macmillan explained that it is also important to learn lessons from the past; noting that human cultural heritage includes both tangible and intangible components.

Meanwhile, Minister Macmillan has said that it is necessary that all plans for preparedness for culture property be situation specific but developed through general guidelines set on the basis of past experiences around the world.

According to her it should also be noted that the success of the plan will not depend on the collective commitment of all the people involved.

She said countries are poorly equipped for preventive care and protection, noting that there is no more awareness of the threat of preparedness amongst staff.
