The Intangible Cultural Heritage of Nepal: Future Directions
PDF File Size: 946 KB | Download   
Since the 1960s the concept of cultural heritage has dramatically broadened. The Venice Charter (1964) made reference to “monuments and sites” and dealt with architectural heritage, which soon expanded to cover clusters of buildings, architecture, and industrial and 20th century built heritage. In other words, what came to be known as ‘tangible’ heritage. By the 1980s heritage experts (largely influenced by anthropology) began to discuss the significance of ‘non-tangible heritage’, which later was termed ‘intangible cultural heritage’ (ICH) - as stipulated in the Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage, which came into effect on 20 April 2006.
A key aspect of the Convention is ultimately to emphasize the role that intangible forms and expressions of culture can have in allowing mankind to better understand one another, and thus promote peace and harmony amongst culturally diverse communities. Furthermore, heritage experts realized that a more holistic approach to cultural heritage was needed: one which acknowledged both tangible and intangible aspects of culture, as well as the ever evolving relationship between the two.
