The Convention for safeguarding intangible heritage of the UNESCO (Paris, 2003) establishes that the immaterial cultural heritage is made up by the ‘uses, representations, expressions, knowledge and techniques –together with the instruments, objects, devices and cultural spaces that are inherent to it- that the communities, groups and in some cases individuals acknowledge as an integrating part of their cultural heritage’.  

The immaterial cultural heritage has a sense of identity, is passed on from one generation to another, and it is constantly recreated by the communities. According to the UNESCO, and without establishing closed categories or classifications, this heritage is specially visible in the following fields:   
  • Oral traditions and expressions, including languages
  • Show arts
  • Social and ritual uses and festivity acts
  • Knowledge and uses related to nature and the universe   
  • Traditional craft techniques
