Short description | Descripción breve | Descrição resumida | Description brève
This site celebrates Intangible Cultural Heritage - the practices, representations and expressions that are central to the lives and identities of communities, groups and individuals across Scotland. In its many and varied forms from cultural festivals to beliefs to passing on traditional skills, it is a means by which humans interact with their natural environment, make sense of the world around them and connects contemporary life to that of past generations.

Short description | Resumen | Resumo | Description brève
Cultural heritage includes the traditions or living expressions of groups and communities, such as oral traditions, performing arts, social practices, rituals, festive events, knowledge and practices concerning nature and the universe or the knowledge and skills to produce traditional crafts. While these may not be tangible – they cannot be touched – they are a very important part of our cultural heritage. This is Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH), a living form of heritage which is continuously recreated and which evolves as communities adapt their practices and traditions in response to their environment.

It provides a sense of identity and belonging in relation to our own cultures which in turn promotes respect and understanding for the cultures of others. People play the key role in the creation and carrying forward of ICH. Communities, collectively, are the ones who create, carry and transmit ICH. A community might share an expression of intangible cultural heritage that is similar to one practiced by others.
While ICH expressions can have either material or non-material outcomes, the key distinction between intangible and tangible cultural heritage is that the former are living examples of human creativity and ingenuity, embedded in the community.

The approach to ICH in Scotland is an inclusive approach which respects the diversity of Scotland’s communities. It is underpinned by UNESCO’s 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage, which is intended to raise awareness of, respect for, and safeguard ICH worldwide.
