Intangible Cultural Heritage

The concept of Intangible Cultural Heritage was born within UNESCO, and defined by an agreement in 2003.  

Intangible heritage manifests itself primarily in the following: 

  • Oral traditions and expressions, including languages
  • Performing arts: dance, theater, music, etc.
  • Festive rites and events
  • Knowledge and practices concerning nature and the world around us
  • Savoir-faire involved in traditional crafts 

UNESCO distinguishes cultural and natural heritage (buildings and landscapes) from Intangible Cultural Heritage.

Protection

Anyone possessing of savoir-faire or knowledge related to Intangible Cultural Heritage possesses an invaluable treasure, and it is important to preserve it, notably by audio and video recording. Time passes and endangered culture cannot wait. It is urgent to act before the savoir-faire and traditional knowledge passed down from generation to generation disappear.
