After its ratification of the Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2007 and the organization of a national workshop on its implementation in July 2012, Uzbekistan will be hosting a sub-regional workshop on “Elaborating nominations to the UNESCO Intangible Heritage Lists”. The workshop to be held in Samarkand from 21 to 24 November 2012 is organized by the UNESCO Office in Tashkent in close co-operation with the Ministry of Culture and Sport of the Republic of Uzbekistan and with the support of the authorities of Samarkand Province.

Conducted as part of UNESCO’s global strategy on the enhancement of capacities in the field of safeguarding intangible cultural heritage, the workshop aims to provide thorough understanding of the nomination processes and transmit the know-how on how to elaborate nominations files for inscription onto the Intangible Heritage Lists.
