REGATA - Rovinj’s regatta of traditional boats with lug and lateen sails organised by ‘Ecomuseum Batana’ - a community project of saguarding Rovinj’s ICH

Ecomuseum Batana (Croatie)

Rovinj’s regata is one of the many activities carried on by the Batana Ecomuseum - a community project of safeguarding local ICH inscribed in 2016 as good practice on UNESCO Register. Through its varied research programmes based on knowledge, respect for cultural heritage and dialogue, inclusion, innovation, its interdisciplinary approach and use of multimedia Batana evaluates, protects, interprets, recreates, presents and communicates maritime heritage and actively reinforces the cultural identity and uniqueness of Rovinj. Since 2005 the Eco-museum in cooperation with the local Sailing Club ‘Maestral’ organizes the Rovinj regatta of traditional lug and lateen sail boats. It was established with the aims:
1. to revive the lugsail (vìla al tièrso) which completely disappeared from use at the end of the 1960s when the small Tomos outboard motor came onto the scene. This motor was produced in nearby Koper and endangered the knowledge and skills of sailing with lugsails, as well as the techniques of their making (particularly their painting);
2. to stimulate intercultural cooperation on the Adriatic, as the lugsail is specific to the areas of Venice’s lagoons, as well as the northern part of the eastern Adriatic coast and which is being achieved primarily through cooperation with the Vela al Terzo Association of Venice which deals with preserving the tradition of lugsails;
3. to create events in Rovinj to celebrate maritime culture in a creative and colourful way, marked by the batana boat which can be enjoyed by all of Rovinj’s residents and visitors.
The Regata is held in june with over 30 traditional boats from the Upper Adriatic. Besides the Regata held on Sunday’s we organize a traditional dinner and music event Saturday evening as to celebrate another phenomena of intangible culture we are bearers of- the bitinada singing. This year during the Regata we will also present the UNESCO Certificate handed to the local community by the Minister of culture. The event is organized under the auspices of the Croatian Ministry of culture and UNESCO office in Croatia.

The chivalric tournament ‘Alka of Sinj’ was founded in 1715. It has been held continuously for three decades in accordance with strictly codified decrees, and using historic uniforms, equipment and weapons. It is a direct reflection of the ancient medieval knight competitions, particularly the one ‘aiming at the ring’ (Lat. ‘hastiludum’, Ita. ‘giostra con l’anello’, Fr. ‘jeu de bagues’, Ger. Ringstechen’). Despite being founded on broad European and oriental knightly traditions throughout many centuries, the Alka tournament of Sinj was a true ethic guidance for its contemporaries. Transposed into the local colors, it effectively safeguards the spirit of chivalry after so many centuries.

AGA has started this community-based festival putting in the streets the practices and traditions of games to share and enhance the dynamics of the social life of urban spaces in a double perspective: a commitment on the recognition of Intangible Cultural Heritage and a growing attention to sustainable development. Verona, its monuments and its historical centre, Unesco World Heritage site, becomes then a place for people meeting other cultural communities in a free spirit and sharing of cultural diversity expressions and values. At the same time the revitalisation of these social practices renews the link between the city and its surroundings, giving an impulse to the local economy in a sustainable way.
The Festival reflects and includes all the domains of Intangible Cultural Heritage, as defined in Article II. It is an excellent opportunity to strengthen the relationship to other international instruments, as the World Heritage Convention.

The Bayard Steed dates back to the 15th century and the three Giants were created in the 17th century. The Saga of the Bayard Steed and its four riders has its origins in a medieval chanson de geste told throughout most of Europe. For years and years, Aymon, Lord of Dendermonde, lived in disagreement with his lord, Charlemagne. The four sons of Aymon continued this fight, counting on the loyal services of their horse, Ros Beiaard. After years of war and fighting, Charlemagne delivered an ultimatum of peace in exchange for Bayard. The faithful horse was drowned at the confluence of the Dender and Scheidt rivers. However, Bayard is very much alive in the Parade of the Bayard Steed. Every ten years, the horse and its four riders hold their triumphal procession through the town. Dendermonde is the only place in the world where the heroic horse forms the central theme of a historic parade (with 2,000 participants and 100,000 spectators).
On the last Thursday of August, the three historical giants lndiaan, Mars and Goliath parade through the town, accompanied by 1000 actors dressed in mediaeval attire.

Events are available to all spectators of all ages, enabling them to directly experience the proposed aspects of folklore.
World Folk Review INTEGRATION does not have a competitive character. It should be noted that the festival is a non-profit activity and could not be implemented without the involvement of young members of the Folk Dance Group Poznan AWF.

The weekend of Whitsun Festivities has been part of the Hungarian Open Air Museum’s annual festivals for a long time. In 2010, in accordance with the proposal by the Department of ICH, the Museum’s council on scientific affairs decided to dedicate the annual event to the mission of raising awareness about the safeguarding of ICH. We plan to present ICH elements related to the topic of folk dance and singing; a bearer community from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania will be invited to participate in the festivities held at the premises of the Hungarian Open Air Museum.
On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of Hungary’s ratification of the 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage, the Hungarian National Commission for UNESCO and the Hungarian Open Air Museum are planning to organize a meeting on the first day for experts from other countries of Europe in order to create a transnational platform to ensure the free flow of information through the mutual coverage of the elements on the national inventories.

World Folk Review INTEGRATION is an international festival organized in Poznań (Poland) since 2001. The mission purpose of the project is promoting culture of different nationalities, ethnic and national minorities. In 2015, we increased the number of festival cities where concerts will be held, so besides the Poznań, the participating ensembles will be performing in Pobiedziska, Kostrzyń, Swarzędz, Wronki, Leszno and Grodzisk Wielkopolski.
The overall concept of the festival comes from the assumption that folklore is an integral part of our identity, and opposed to the perception of folklore as an exclusive product, inaccessible to people outside the exclusive group of dancers and supporters. Events are available to all spectators of all ages enabling the direct experience of the proposed aspects of folklore. Participation in all festival events is free. World Folk Review INTEGRATION does not have a competition character. Till year 2015 we visited: Leszno, Wągrowiec, Grodzisk Wielkopolski, Słupia, Konin, Wronki, Pobiedziska and Poznań.
lt should be noted that the festival is a non-profit and its implementation would not be possible without the involvement of young people, members of the Folk Dance Group Poznań AWF, whose as volunteers donate their time combining work with a passion for dance.

The chivalric tournament “Alka of Sinj” was founded in 1715. It has been held continuously for three decades in accordance with strictly codified decrees, and using historic equipment. It is a direct reflection of ancient medieval knight competitions, particularly the one ‘aiming at the ring’.
To the present day, the Alka tournament has managed to present the historical coloring which was interlaced with ancient local, oriental and Venetian influences through luxurious clothes and strictly defined rules of competition. When combined, they reflect the historic coexistence and osmosis of something that may at first glance seem like two different models of civilization.

The chivalric tournament “Alka of Sinj” was founded in 1715. It has been held continuously for nearly three decades in accordance with strictly codified decrees, and using historic uniforms, equipment and weapons.
It is a direct reflection of ancient medieval knight competitions, particularly the one ‘aiming at the ring’ (Lat. hastiludum, Ital. giostra con l’anello, Fr. jeu de bagues, Ger. Ringstechen).
Despite being founded on broad European and oriental knightly traditions over many centuries, the Alka tournament of Sinj was a true ethical guidance for its contemporaries, the inhabitants of the Cetina region.
Transposed into local colour, it effectively safeguards the chivalric spirit after so many centuries.
At the same time, to the present day the Alka tournament has managed to save the authenticity of the historical coloring interlaced with ancient local, oriental and Venetian influences through luxurious clothes and strictly defined rules of competition as well as through the specific terminology related to its elements.
When combined, they reflect the historic coexistence and osmosis of something that may at first glance seem like two different models of civilization.

Festival Aklapela was founded in 2012 - it is a festival of the best Croatian klapas that nourish the authentic klapa singing, a festival named by a pun of the words “klapa” and “a cappella”.
The songs are performed without instrumental accompaniment, and with little or no help of amplifiers, in the same way, or a way similar to the authentic one of performing Croatian traditional klapa song.
The traditional klapa song did not evolve in concerts and for concerts, but concert performances are one of the ways to share the entire beauty of klapa singing with as many admirers as possible.
Unlike other numerous established music festivals that are successfully held in Dubrovnik, Aklapela is an entirely national musical product and, with visionary artistic leadership, has the potential to become a referent value of Croatian ethno-music.

From 2010 the Festival has been held under the auspices of the UNESCO Office in Croatia. At the Festival, lace centres from Europe and Croatia participate through exhibitions, workshops and lectures. Furthermore, they represent their cultural heritage to visitors.
The Festival consists of numerous events, such as a traditional handicrafts fair, a lace themed philatelic exhibition, lace motif installations, cultural associations performances, local folklore performances, a national folklore performance, folklore performances by ethnic minorities, creative children’s exhibition performances by brass bands and jazz, classical and popular music concerts.

298th Sinjska Alka knights’ tournament
02/08/2013 - 04/08/2013SINJ
Contact :
ALKA KNIGHTS’ COMMUNITY SINJ (Croatie)

Chivalric tournament “Alka of Sinj” was founded in 1715. It is being held continuously for nearly three decades in accordance with strictly codified decree, with historic uniform, equipment and weapons. It is a direct reflection of ancient medieval knight competitions, particularly one of ‘aiming at the ring’ (lat. hastiludum, ital. giostra con l’anello, fr. jeu de bagues, deutch Ringstechen).
Even though founded on wide European and oriental knightly traditions throughout many centuries; Alka tournament of Sinj was a true ethic guidance for its contemporaries, inhabitants of Cetina region. Being transposed into local colour it jealously protects chivalric spirit after so many centuries.
At the same time, Alka tournament managed to save until present the authenticity of historical colourness which was interlaced with ancient local, oriental and Venetian influences throughout luxurious clothes and strictly defined rules of competition as well as in specific terminology related to its elements.
When combined, they reflect historic coexistence and osmosis of something that may at first glance seem as two different models of civilization.

10/06/2013 - 10/06/2013Paris, France

The Gala Evening was organized on the occasion of the celebration of the 10th Anniversary of the Convention for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage. Hungary has been an active participant and promoter of Intangible Cultural Heritage ever since the inception of the Convention. The aim of the activity was to contribute to the worldwide celebrations of this special anniversary, as well as to promote and raise awareness about the Convention’s spirits and values.
Various Hungarian elements of the Representative List and a best practice was showcased to the audience. The winners of a well-known folk music and dance TV competition (“Fölszállott a páva”) were the main protagonists of the evening, thus receiving a very wide range of media presence, mainly in the Hungarian press (printed, radio, TV, Internet, social media).
