ICH Event and Festival Support

ICHCAP has been actively supporting public events and festivals relevant to intangible cultural heritage in different places and occasions such as performances, exhibitions, and workshops. In this initiative, in addition to providing support to partner organizations, ICHCAP also takes advantage of bringing ICH to more people by giving them free access to relevant contents accumulated by the Centre such as videos, photos, and publication materials. ICHCAP views ICH events and festivals as an amplified space where raising public awareness of ICH is genuinely conceivable.
