Tibet launches recording project for better cultural inheritance

Feb. 22, 2017 -- Tibet will launch a protective recording project to make audio-visual archives for 10 representative inheritors of national intangible cultural heritage this year, a move to preserve precious data for better inheritance and further research.

At present, there are 89 state-level intangible cultural heritage projects and 68 representative inheritors in Tibet.

"Inheritors play a crucial role in the protection and inheritance of intangible cultural heritage. Their average age is over 70. There are serious concerns that ‘Art dies with their passing away’," said Awang Danzeng, Deputy Director of Tibet Protection Centre of Intangible Cultural Heritage.

"This year, the protection work will cover Tibetan dance, incense, medicine and astronomical calendar, etc," added Awang Danzeng.
