In addition to the classroom sessions, participants formed four working groups to take part in an on-site practicum with four museums and/or communities in Lamphun: Camadevi Monastery Museum, Ton Kaew Monastery Museum, Pratupa Monastery, and Luk Village Senior Association. The working groups had a total of 7 fieldwork sessions with their assigned sites. For each fieldwork session, the participants had the opportunity to apply tools and concepts from morning lectures., including the following activities: (1) assessment of the role of museum in the community (including an assessment of networks and linkages between the museum and other community institutions); (2) participatory inventory and identification of intangible cultural heritage; (3) research and documentation of a selected element of ICH; (4) assessing cultural rights issues pertaining to selected element of ICH; (5) participatory development of a plan for transmitting, revitalizing and enhancing the selected element of ICH via the museum.
At the conclusion of the on-site program, each working group presented their plan highlighting one aspect of intangible heritage, reported on lessons learned and gave recommendations for the enhancement of ICH activities in participating museums. In addition, each of the groups had to produce and English and Thai language brochure featuring the element of ICH for distribution to the participating communities.
