Tibet sets up databases for intangible cultural heritages
15:33, July 24, 2012  

Databases have been setting up at levels of regional, prefectural and county in China's Tibet to better preserve the region's intangible cultural heritages, according to local authorities.

The region's cultural agencies at all levels have been dedicating to the electronic edition of texts, pictures and videos of intangible cultural items since 2006 when Tibet began to set up this database project.

Tibet has discovered about 800 items of intangible cultural heritages, including folk literature, traditional music and dance, folk dramas and operas as well as handicrafts.

So far, Tibet has finished the type-in work for the first and second batches of over 120 national and regional items of intangible cultural heritage. Now, the type-in work of the third batch is underway by staff of the intangible cultural heritage protection center of Tibet.

"We also plan to establish an individual database for Tibetan Opera, and we are now dealing with the data collection, systemization and translation work," said Ngawang Tenzin, director of the intangible cultural heritage protection center.

The database will cover different sects of Tibetan Opera in both Tibetan and Mandarin languages and include the related data of inheritors and achievements of Tibet Opera as well, added Ngawang Tenzin.

Tibet now has two representative items of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, 76 national-level items and 22 regional-level items of intangible cultural heritage.

Besides, it has 47 national representative inheritors of intangible cultural heritage and 221 regional ones.
