Ballesté presented the project they are working on, and the different pedagogical resources that they have developed to bring Intangible Heritage to the classroom, such as the fallaire suitcase. The fallaire suitcase is part of a set of actions dedicated to the dissemination of the Falles, Haros and Brandons carried out by the Chair on Education and Intangible Heritage of the Pyrenees. This is part of a set of actions dedicated to the dissemination of falles, their enhancement and research.
During the event, presentations were made on how to deal with intangible cultural heritage in different areas. The participants in the sessions were also able to carry out different workshops and group work in order to put into practice everything they had learned in the sessions.
