Living Heritage Recognition And Appreciation Programme 2019
George Town World Heritage Incorporated has introduced Living Heritage Recognition and Appreciation Programme 2019 to give recognition to long-standing establishments of skilled trades and crafts in the George Town UNESCO World Heritage Site.
A pilot incentive which is supported by the State Government of Penang, the programme will acknowledge and promote the invaluable contributions of our living heritage, especially local artisans, craftsmen and practitioners, to the historic city of George Town which was inscribed with Melaka as a UNESCO World Heritage Site on 7 July 2008.
Malaysian artisans, craftsmen and practitioners established for at least 50 years and currently still practising within the George Town UNESCO World Heritage Site are encouraged to apply for the programme or be nominated by the public. Eligible applicants and nominees will receive a specially designed plaque and certificate of appreciation.
Application and nomination for the programme can be done for free online at http://bit.ly/2UJtsiT or at the George Town World Heritage Incorporated office before 15 September 2019. For application and nomination details, please contact Ms Sim Jun Hui ([email protected] or 014-604 3125).
CALL FOR PROPOSALS FOR DESIGN OF PLAQUES
Creative industry champions are invited to submit a proposal to design the plaques for Living Heritage Recognition and Appreciation Programme 2019.
These plaques will be a symbol of significance and appreciation for the eligible applicants of the programme, our living heritage who have dedicated their time and effort to their profession for 50 years or more, and are still currently practising within the George Town UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Those interested can submit a one-page proposal of the design concept and your resume by 16 August 2019 to Ms Sim Jun Hui ([email protected], 014-6043125).
