Commemoration of Carriers of Cultural Heritage
Ardabil/ Bile-Savar/ Deputy of Cultural Heritage/ May 17th
At the moment, about 20 people are on the list of carriers of cultural heritage and traditional knowledge in Iran and a number of other cases are being considered in different provinces. Knowledge of how to dig a Qanat, Reading Shahnameh, local songs, various techniques and skills, and the art of life in past are only a small part of ancient culture and civilization in Iran, carried by these people. By establishing and commemorating the knowledge of these people, their names and well as the traditions can be registered in the course of history and preserved for the next generations. “The Week of Cultural Heritage” is a precious opportunity to commemorate these people.
