Virtual Exhibit of “Living Heritage: Exploring the Intangible”

The exhibit “Living Heritage: Exploring the Intangible” is on display on the fence surrounding UNESCO Headquarters from 12 April to 30 November 2007.
Now you can see it without buying an airline ticket to Paris!
The exhibition presents more than 100 photos featuring oral traditions, traditional music, dance and theatre, social practices, rituals and festivals, as well as traditional knowledge and skills that communities and groups around the world receive from their ancestors and pass on to their descendants. The photos feature the 90 Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity proclaimed by UNESCO between 2001 and 2005 as well as other recent initiatives supported by UNESCO for safeguarding intangible cultural heritage.
