SAARC NATIONS TO DEVELOP A SHARED INTANGIBLE CULTURAL HERITAGE DATABASE

During the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) Cultural Festival on Traditional Dances of South Asia, held in New Delhi, speakers at the workshop on “Intangible Cultural Heritage in the context of SAARC” have all agreed with the idea of developing a shared-database in order to better coordinate ICH interventions and promote their passing down from generation to generation.

Many support the importance of these initiatives, but they also highlight how it is crucial to create an atmosphere where youngsters are spurred to take over south Asian traditional knowledge; therefore it would be useful to establish arts and crafts hubs in addition to those situated in tourism spots.

This occasion was also taken to announce publicly that a SAARC Heritage Committee will be soon established and that Colombo and New Delhi has finally signed an agreement to cooperate in the preservation of Orissa Buddhist sites.

To emphasize South Asia’s cultural wealth, the Festival offered various performances from all over SAARC nations: Afghanistan presented its Mili Attan and Karsak recitals; Bangladesh its bottle dance and Jhoom; Nepal provided exhibitions of Manjushree and Bhairav Kali dance; Sri Lanka contributed with Kandyan dance; and India took part with Chhau dances, Dhol Cholam and Kathakali.
