Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) originates from everyday life and is transmitted from generation to generation. ICH items include various social practices, representations, knowledge, skills as well as the objects, instruments and other things associated therewith. ICH elements can also be identified in clothing, food, accommodation and travel. As ICH has a dynamic and living nature, its substance and form evolve in response to environmental changes over time, so as to provide members of a community with a sense of identity and continuity. This talk gives a brief account of the significance of ICH transmission, and shares with participants the work of promoting and safeguarding ICH in Hong Kong as well as its development.
