|Dec.6,2017--A number of Tibetan intangible cultural heritage items have been digitized with recording projects for twenty national-level inheritors completed, according to the Protection Center for Intangible Cultural Heritage in Tibet.
"The first ten national-level inheritors are aged between 74 and 88. It is urgent to digitize intangible cultural heritage as some cultural inheritors are getting older," said Ocho, head of the Protection Center for Intangible Cultural Heritage in Tibet.
The digitalization work will build a database of intangible cultural heritage, said Ocho.
In recent years, some intangible cultural heritage items are endangered as some national-level inheritors passed away. Since 2015, Tibet has been carrying out recording projects to rescue them.
