The start of the seventeenth session of the Intergovernmental Committee for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage is fast approaching. With over 1000 participants already registered, this will be the first time the living heritage global community comes together in person since the 14.COM in Bogotá, Colombia, in 2019. UNESCO thanks the Kingdom of Morocco for hosting the session in Rabat (Sofitel Rabat Jardin des Roses) from 28 November to 3 December 2022.
Coming from all around the globe, participants will have the occasion to celebrate numerous expressions of living heritage, in particular through inscriptions. At the same time over 40 side events will be held on various themes related to the safeguarding of living heritage, and the ICH NGO forum will be holding its annual general assembly.
UNESCO looks forward to seeing everyone in Rabat.
