Intangible Cultural Heritage of Bhutan

ICHCAP provided support and collaborated with the Bhutan National Library and Archives to publish Intangible Cultural Heritage of Bhutan, for which the Bhutanese government conducted onsite research on communities across sixteen regions to systematically discover and collate information on three hundred ICH elements. Through this book we aim to provide a useful source of information for understanding and safeguarding ICH in Bhutan and promote international and regional cooperation and develop a cultural means of sustainable development.

Included in the book are five chapters, each dedicated an ICH domain with illustrative examples showing the relationship between ICH and the practicing communities.
