Making Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) revelant to the Youth

Guiding identity development in young adults through ICH exploration

More Info


This report journeys through the research and design processes, activities and outcomes of the project that brings young adults closer to their intangible heritage and cultural identity. Intangible cultural heritage (or ICH) being at the core of this project, is a fairly new and lesser known concept. With its presence in daily life as traditions, rituals, languages, know-hows, belief systems and the like, it forms the very essence of culture and of people’s identity. At the focus of this project is the intent to guide and enable young adults/youth between 18-30 years to explore ICH such that it incites reflection and sharing, which in turn make the young adults realize their culture and identity.
