Intangible heritage scheme opens

December 1, 2023

The Leisure & Cultural Services Department is inviting applications for the Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) Funding Scheme until noon on January 18, 2024.


The funding scheme consists of two parts, namely Community-driven Projects 2023 and Partnership Projects 2023.


Community-driven projects must relate to items on the Representative List and the Inventory of the ICH of Hong Kong. For partnership projects, applications are invited across seven ICH categories, namely Research & Publication, ICH Domain, ICH Mobile Centre, ICH Everywhere, ICH Hub, ICH Creation, and Transmission & Training Programmes.


The department said the funding scheme aims to strengthen safeguarding, research, education and promotion with regard to local ICH items, and to aid the transmission of ICH.


By engaging the community in safeguarding ICH, the department also hopes the scheme will enhance public awareness and understanding of, and respect for, ICH.


Application information is available on the website of the ICH Office. Application forms and relevant documents can be submitted in person or via GovHK.


A session will be held at 3pm on December 15 at the Lecture Hall of the Hong Kong Museum of History in Tsim Sha Tsui to brief interested parties on the funding scheme and how to make applications to it. Registration for the session can be completed online.
