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.

Please send information on new ICH efforts (or efforts which have not yet been included in this map) to, 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.
