What is "intangible cultural heritage"?

This is the definition according to the Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage adopted by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization:

"The intangible cultural heritage means the practices, representations, expressions, knowledge, skills - as well as the instruments, objects, artifacts and cultural spaces associated therewith - that communities, groups and, in some cases, individuals recognize as part of their cultural heritage. This intangible cultural heritage, transmitted from generation to generation, is constantly recreated by communities and groups in response to their environment, their interaction with nature and their history, and provides them with a sense of identity and continuity, thus promoting respect for cultural diversity and human creativity."

According to the Convention, intangible cultural heritage(ICH) is manifested in five domains:

1) Oral traditions and expressions, including language as a vehicle of the intangible cultural heritage:

2) Performing arts:

3) Social practices, rituals and festive events;

4) Knowledge and practices concerning nature and the universe;

5) Traditional craftsmanship.
