Cultural managers from The Gambia’s Banjul and Georgetown, Fort Bullen Barra and Stone Circle sites, completed the Heritage Management Organization’s 3-day workshop in Heritage Interpretation for Site Managers.

The workshop was held online and is part of the Organization’s HerMaP Gambia project which is being realized in partnership with the Gambia’s National Centre for the Arts (NCAC).

NCAC Director General, Hassoum Ceesay, said the workshop was a success. “The training series offered by HERITAGE enables participants to communicate our country's extremely diverse and important heritage, supporting tourism and the creative industries,” Hassoum Ceesay pointed out.

“The workshop on Heritage Interpretation offered me and my fellow participants, useful insights and guidance on aspects like turning phenomena into experiences, provoking resonance in visitors, drawing a stakeholder and conservation-led map of heritage sites, and many more,” said participant Aba T. Hydata, an independent artist and President of the Fort Bullen Festival.

The Heritage Management Organization’s “HerMaP Gambia” program is aimed at developing the business skills of heritage and cultural managers to enable them to establish and better support heritage and cultural enterprises. Supporting The Gambia’s heritage sector will promote greater community solidarity and provide high-quality opportunities for local talent, hopefully helping the country address brain-drain by providing better employment opportunities.

The program is co-financed by the European Union with funding partly matched by the UN Economic Commission for Africa. It is being realized in partnership with the National Centre for Arts and Culture.
