About the ICH Courier

Welcome to the ICH Courier Online.
The ICH Courier, published by ICHCAP is quarterly magazine to disseminate information and news related to Asia-Pacific intangible cultural heritage.
The ICH Courier highlights valuable intangible cultural heritage assets in the forty-eight Member States of the Asia-Pacific region and shares timely information about community efforts to safeguard intangible heritage with subscribers around the world.
Intangible cultural heritage is considered to be a mainspring of cultural diversity and a guarantee of sustainable development. ICHCAP hopes that the ICH Courier can contribute to enhancing the awareness of intangible heritage and that such efforts will serve as a foundation for safeguarding and transmitting intangible heritage.
