Capturing Culture

Intangible cultural Heritage includes oral traditions, performing arts, social practices, rituals, festive events, knowledge and practices concerning nature and the universe or the knowledge and skills to produce traditional crafts.
There are many such specimens around us, the task is to choose any one of them, they may not necessarily be on the UNSECO list.

The GCA needs to talk to the artistes or practitioners of the culture, talk to them about the legacy, the importance of the culture in history of civilisation and its current state. GCAs need to include the interview with the artist in an article and their suggestions and ideas on preserving the ICH.
