11th Session of the Intangible Cultural Heritage Committee

This year, the Philippines won a prestigious 4-year seat in the Intangible Cultural Heritage committee, the main body tasked with monitoring and implementing the 2003 Convention.

The Philippines will be attending the 11th Session of the Committee in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, from November-December 2016. A primary task of the meeting is to review fifty international nominations for inscription in the 2003 Convention’s Lists: the Representative List, the Urgent Safeguarding List, and the Register of Best Practices. Our participation will hopefully strengthen our ability to nominate and protect our country’s intangible cultural heritage.
