    This paper engages with challenges associated with intersectional erasure in narrating history. We examine challenges related specifically to structural inequality and representation of gender through creative intervention, focusing on women’s agency within existing heritage narratives in contemporary culture. We explore the potential of intangible cultural heritage (hereafter ICH) as a medium and a vehicle to trouble or nuance existing dominant narratives and a concept of intersectionality.
