Awareness of the Intangible Value of Cultural Spaces

Kwon Huh

Abstract

The paper was prepared to encourage the growth of an awareness of the intangible values of cultural space and the importance of their safeguarding, as well as the forming of networks between field researchers, NGOs and local communities. Asia and the Pacific region has long been a melting pot of cultures. However, the importance of intangible heritage has not well reflected in the cultural heritage policies. The UNESCO’s World Heritage project starts from a tangible perspective, focused on the outstanding universal value of physical heritage. There needs to be an intangible approach, one that studies cultural spaces closely as a living heritage. The role of community in the safeguarding of heritage also differs in the tangible and intangible approaches. Community is a very important concept in the safeguarding of both tangible and intangible heritage. In the case of intangible heritage, communities are the actors that carry out its transmission and enactment, allowing the heritage to live on. One specific solution towards this end is the integrated protection of tangible and intangible heritage. The UNESCO 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage, which emphasizes the inseparability of tangible, intangible and natural heritage, will play an especially important role. Cultural spaces are where history and culture comes together. First, areas with historical, aesthetic, folk culture and religious value need to be identified. This should be followed by efforts such as research, documentation and safeguarding of their intangible value. To this end, specific measures such as research on the available documents, creation of networks between neighbouring countries and information exchange should be carried out.
