The Qingjiangpu District Intangible Cultural Heritage Protection Association in Huai’an, Jiangsu province, was recently set up. The district-level association, the first of its kind in Huai’an, has almost 100 members, including more than 30 inheritors of intangible cultural heritage. The association has become a platform for these inheritors to showcase their work and carry out related exchanges, which can allow relevant heritages in the district to be better inherited and protected.
Huai’an city boasts six national-level, 33 provincial-level, 163 city-level and nearly 400 county or district-level intangible cultural heritages, and owns two national-level, 12 provincial-level and 213 city-level intangible cultural inheritors. With constant in-depth intangible cultural heritage protection, it is necessary for the city to explore various effective measures in its intangible cultural heritage protection.
