The project covers prominent intangible cultural heritage items of the Muong, Thai, Tay, Dao and Mong ethnic minority groups in 10 district-level localities of the province.
gongs of the Muong ethnic group are among the outstanding intangible heritage
elements in Hoa Binh province.
The project for 2020-2030 consists of four
sub-projects which focus on listing; collecting and documenting; introducing,
popularising and teaching; and building a database on outstanding intangible
cultural heritage elements of ethnic groups in Hoa Binh.
In its implementation plan, the provincial
administration set several main tasks, including collecting documents and
artefacts linked with the intangible cultural heritage elements, and completing
heritage listing and documentation.
Relevant agencies are set to compile scientific
dossiers on 10 outstanding elements to seek the Ministry of Culture, Sports and
Tourism’s recognition of them as part of the national intangible cultural
heritage. They will also finalise a dossier on the Mo Muong Hoa Binh to be
submitted to UNESCO to seek inscription in the list of intangible cultural
heritage of humanity.
Local authorities will also carry out some
teaching projects for the art of Muong gong playing, the building of
traditional stilt houses of the Muong ethnic group, the Thuong Dang and Bo Meng
singing, the ancient calendar of Muong people, and the Khap singing of the Tay
and Thai communities.
Publications introducing the heritage elements
will also be compiled, published and distributed. Besides, in-depth training in
heritage collection, preservation, display, performance and communications will
be provided for specialised staff members at the provincial Department of
Culture, Sports and Tourism, and in localities.
The provincial People’s Committee assigned the
Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism to coordinate with the Department of
Finance, the Department of Information and Communications, the province’s Radio
