2019 nominations will be discussed by the Committee during its 14th session, from 9 to 14 December 2019

The Committee meets annually to evaluate nominations proposed by States Parties to the 2003 Convention and decide whether or not to inscribe those cultural practices and expressions of intangible heritage on the Convention’s Lists.
