Angola: Governor Highlights Training for Heritage Protection

Sumbe — Training of cultural agents is important for protection, enhancement and divulgation of the material and immaterial heritage of the country, taking into account its transmission to future generations, Angop has learnt.

This was voiced by the minister of Culture, Rosa Cruz e Silva, at the opening act of the seminars on management of archives, dynamization, theatre and dance, management of built and classified heritage, on the orthographic harmonization of Bantu language and techniques of collecting of oral tradition.

The seminar is taking place under the commemorating activities of the National Culture Day, January 08.

Rosa Cruz e Silva also said that due to the gaps detected in the sector, the Ministry has been doing a great effort to provide the cultural agents with necessary knowledge for the holding of their tasks within the community.

She said that the training sessions, despite being of short term ones are important to provide the agents with tools that enable them to improve their tasks of better serving the people.

"It is also a manner of how the cultural agents update their knowledge, so that they can materialize their actions with more organization", she said.
