Photo Exhibition: A Window into Intangible Heritage

19/24-11-2013 Seoul (República de Corea)

The International Information and Networking Centre for Intangible Cultural Heritage in the Asia-Pacific Region under the auspices of UNESCO (ICHCAP), on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the ICH Convention, holds a photo exhibition titled A Window into Intangible Heritage. This photo exhibition was prepared with the dedicated collaboration of ICHCAP’s partners in the Asia-Pacific region. The displayed photographs were not taken by professional photographers but by local researchers. Although the photographs are not artistic, they are a window into our traditions, one that will help us explore the diversity of ICH. The exhibition includes ICH photographs that have been collected for the ICH Courier and other projects. More than twenty photographs representing the five domains of the Convention were selected to be displayed. The exhibition launched in Gwangju City on 27 September 2013 in connection with ICHCAP’s international conference,‘Reflection on the Efforts to Safeguard ICH and Prospects for the Future,’ that was held on 27 and 28 September 2013. ICHCAP is planning to hold at least three exhibitions in different cities (Jinju in 14-15 October and Seoul in 19-24 November) before the end of 2013.
