First Proclamation of Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity


Language: Pluringual

Many years of research undertaken by UNESCO on the functions and values of cultural expressions and practices have opened the door to new approaches to the understanding, protection and respect of the cultural heritage of humanity. This living heritage, known as intangible, provides each bearer of such expressions a sense of identity and continuity, insofar as he or she takes ownership of them and constantly recreates them.
This CD-ROM is full of documents, short videos and images related to the elements in the First Proclamation of Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage, 2001
