‘ichLinks’, a digital platform covering information on intangible cultural heritage (ICH) in the Asia-Pacific region, will make its debut in March 2021.

Water puppetry is one of Vietnam's intangible cultural heritages.

‘ichLinks’ is a one-stop online platform where a wide range of ICH information and content shared by and with Asia-Pacific member states can be found. The platform name, ‘ichLinks,’ is a combination of the words ‘ich’ (intangible cultural heritage) and ‘links.’

Through the platform, researchers, practitioners, policymakers and other relevant people can easily search for and locate ICH-related information and content with the help of advanced digital technology. Besides this, they can also use that information and content to promote their cultural heritages and create opportunities to exploit ICHs for socio-economic development in many areas, such as tourism and cultural and creative industries.

After being activated, this online platform will also help organise the live cultural, tourism and creative events based on the ICH content provided through this platform in a broader fashion.
