INTANGIBLE CULTURAL HERITAGE IN MALTA

The UNESCO Convention for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage was ratified on 7th March 2017 after being approved by the Maltese Parliament with Motion 450. The fact that Malta wanted to ratify this Convention of 2003, sent a clear signal of the strong commitment towards the conservation and nourishment of collective memory and national identity.

 

Along with other international instruments that protect cultural heritage, the 2003 Convention is aimed at safeguarding the uses, representations, expressions, knowledge and techniques that communities, groups and, in some cases, individuals, recognise as an integral part of their cultural heritage. ​​
