Intangible heritage is traditional culture, folklore, or popular culture that is performed or practiced with close ties to “place” and with little complex technological accompaniment.
Intangible heritage requires the presence of traditional culture bearers to give it life.
The cooperation and participation of “folk” are prerequisites for the presentation of intangible heritage.
The cultural space is important, for intangible heritage is intrinsically linked to a place or context.
Removing the heritage asset from its context may affect its authenticity.
Practiced and competence-based
Exclusive but non worship
The assessment of the significance of intangible heritage is crucial to planning for its management and the setting of conservation priorities.
In an ideal world, it would be carried out in the documentation, registration, and/or archiving stage before a management policy is devised.
Promotion of its cultural values to the wider community by appropriate dissemination or display would also be an important part of any management plan.
As a result, responsible marketing and commodification by the tourism sector should also be an important element of any conservation strategy.
