The seventh session of the General Assembly of the States Parties to the Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage took place at UNESCO headquarters, Paris, from Monday 4 to Wednesday 6 June 2018. Over the three days, 177 States Parties discussed a number of issues that are important for the safeguarding of living heritage around the world.

In the margin of this Assembly, a series of side-events was organized by the Secretariat under the global theme of ‘Tell your #living heritage story’. They exhibited the richness of living heritage today and provided a platform for discourse and experience-sharing among the different actors involved in safeguarding, including the States, NGOs, youth and community members.
