• The Network of Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) shows the variety of cultural expressions that communities, groups or individuals themselves recognize as intangible cultural heritage. They have registered this ICH in the Network. The Dutch Centre for Intangible Cultural Heritage is therefore not responsible for the content of the description.
  • The Inventory Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) in the Netherlands contains ICH of which the communities, groups or individuals involved have written a safeguarding plan. Those plans are reviewed by an independent review committee. Every three years an evaluation of the safeguarding takes place.
  • The Register of Inspiring Examples of Safeguarding highlights examples of safeguarding developed by ICH communities, groups or individuals with ICH in the Inventory. These methods of safeguarding can inspire others and are shared with other communities on the basis of a step-by-step plan.
