via Nhan Dan, 14 December 2020: A forthcoming website by UNESCO-ICHCAP will provide information about the various intangible cultural heritage found in the Asia-Pacific. This article focuses on the contributions of the Vietnam National Institute of Culture and Art Studies.
‘ichLinks’, a digital platform covering information on intangible cultural heritage (ICH) in the Asia-Pacific region, will make its debut in March 2021.
The ‘ichLinks’ project is being implemented by the International Information and Networking Centre for ICH in the Asia-Pacific region under the auspices of UNESCO (ICHCAP). The Vietnam National Institute of Culture and Art Studies is among the coordinating agencies in the implementation process.
‘ichLinks’ is a one-stop online platform where a wide range of ICH information and content shared by and with Asia-Pacific member states can be found. The platform name, ‘ichLinks,’ is a combination of the words ‘ich’ (intangible cultural heritage) and ‘links.’
