The First Step to Safeguarding Eritrea’s Intangible Cultural Heritage

by Billion Temesghen | Needless to say, culture is important, especially in Eritrea, as it been historically the foundation of a united nation. It is actually what Eritreans are most proud of and tirelessly talk about. However, during the second half of February 2018, the issue of culture has been getting a different attention in connection with intangible heritage. It became the talk of the city, thanks to the news of a workshop that was held from the 19th to 28th of February. The news alone has somehow stimulated some thought provoking ideas and curiosities amongst the inhabitants of Asmara. This time around, young Eritrean experts are working hard alongside stakeholders and organizations to treasure their culture and make sure to pass it down to future generations. Therefore, Asmara hosted a workshop for capacity building in preparing nomination files and making requests for international assistance for the intangible cultural heritage (ICH) of Eritrea.
