THE DECISION ON THE INSCRIPTION OF THE POLYPHONIC CARAVAN

ON UNESCO'S REGISTER OF GOOD SAFEGUARDING PRACTICES IS TAKEN TODAY 

 

 

In the context of the 15th session of the Intergovernmental Committee, the proposal for the inscription of the Polyphonic Caravan on UNESCO's International Register of Good Safeguarding Practices in the field of Intangible Cultural Heritage is being examined today. The proposal had been submitted by the Greek Ministry of Culture in March 2019 and constitutes the first ever proposal from the side of Greece for an inscription on the Register, where since 2009 and until today, only 22 Practices have been inscribed from 180 states parties to UNESCO's 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage. The Register includes good safeguarding practices of ICH, programmes, projects and activities that best reflect the principles and objectives of the Convention.

The proposal for the inscription of the Polyphonic Caravan is documented by its 22 years-long, manifold and very fruitful action and is supported by Greece's community of polyphony as a whole, accompanied by 100 letters of consent written by old and new co-travelers. Besides, the inscription is reflected at the Polyphonic Song of Epirus itself, which is in this way promoted on a global level. The responsible Evaluation Body proposed to the Intergovernmental Committee the inscription of the Polyphonic Caravan, proposing even the recognition of the file as a whole as a good example in the context of the 2020 inscription cycle. All these will be assessed by the session which takes place online and you can follow from live webcast today from 14:30 until 17:30 (time of Greece) in the following link.
