Dear national sections!

Dear national sections!

I hope that everyone is well and in the best of health!

This pandemic all over the world has infected the work of all of us. As the cultural events and festivals have been cancelled or postponed, CIOFF would like to share through our social media videos of intangible cultural heritage from different countries. Even though we can't present our culture and heritage live during these difficult times, we should still share the beauty and diversity of our cultures.

We would appreciate if every national section could share with us a video presenting intangible cultural heritage that has been recongnized by UNESCO. In addition to the video, a short text explaining the phenomenon and the author/copyrights holder of the video. The video could be of music, dance, handicrafts etc. The text should be in English, Spanish or French.

Please share the videos (through Wetransfer, Dropbox, Google Drive etc) or links of the videos (Youtube, Vimeo etc) and texts to cultural-commission@cioff.org by April 20th.

Thank you for your cooperation!



In the name of the Council, Cultural Commission and PR-team
