Intangible Cultural Heritage

UNESCO-Intangible Cultural Heritage Logo
UNESCO defines Cultural Heritage as everything including traditions and living expressions inherited from our ancestors and passed on to our descendants, such as oral traditions, performing arts, social practices, rituals, festive events, knowledge and practices concerning nature and the universe or the knowledge and skills to produce traditional crafts.
