It is the first field activity of a UNESCO capacity-building project, made possible with the generous support of Norway through the Intangible Cultural Heritage Fund. In Argentina, the tango community in Buenos Aires will undertake a similar exercise in the coming months, after a workshop on drawing up inventories of intangible cultural heritage starting on 25 February in Buenos Aires. With the support of UNESCO/Japan Funds-in-Trust, representatives from civil society as well as from cultural institutions both at the federal and provincial level are receiving intensive training in inventories of intangible cultural heritage in which bearers play a key role.
