Practitioners, researchers, scholars, NGOs and other stakeholders engaged in Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) issues are invited by Memória Imaterial to submit proposals and updates of ICH e-Inventories to include in the Map of e-Inventories of Intangible Cultural Heritage.

To explore the interactive map created by Memória Imaterial and learn about ICH efforts around the world, visit: memoriamedia.net.

Please send information on new ICH efforts (or efforts which have not yet been included in this map) to memoriaimaterial@gmail.com, so that the map may be updated and improved.

The definition of “ICH e-Inventory” adopted by the project includes: online published inventories with free access, of or about expressions of one or more domains of the intangible cultural heritage – "oral traditions and expressions, including language as a vehicle of the intangible cultural heritage; performing arts; social practices, rituals and festive events; knowledge and practices concerning nature and the universe; traditional craftsmanship" (UNESCO, 2003, no.2, art.2). For this purpose, are not considered: inventories in preparatory stage without available content; web sites with exclusively touristic information or denominative lists in which do not appear, at least, a description or transcription of the cultural expressions included in the inventory.

Work coordinated by Memória Imaterial - Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) accredited by the UNESCO and based in Portugal.
