Intangible Cultural Heritage Funding Scheme 2022 opens for application
     The Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) Funding Scheme for this year under the ICH Office of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) is open for application from today (December 29).

     The funding scheme consists of two parts, namely the Community-driven Projects 2022 and the Partnership Projects 2022. The objective of the funding scheme is to support local individuals and organisations with relevant experience to carry out ICH projects with a view to strengthening the safeguarding, research, education, promotion and transmission of Hong Kong's ICH items, as well as supporting the transmission of ICH by local bearers and bearer organisations. Through engaging the community's participation in safeguarding ICH, the scheme aims at enhancing public awareness, understanding and respect in regard to ICH.

     The scope of support of the Community-driven Projects 2022 covers projects related to the items in the Representative List and the Inventory of the ICH of Hong Kong. For the Partnership Projects 2022, applications are invited for four items, namely the Survey and Research for Enriching the ICH Inventory of Hong Kong; ICH for All; ICH Mobile Centre; and Thinking Beyond ICH.

     Application information of the ICH Funding Scheme is available at the ICH Office's website (www.lcsd.gov.hk/CE/Museum/ICHO/en_US/web/icho/home.html). Applicants must submit the application form and relevant documents in person to the Hong Kong Intangible Cultural Heritage Centre at Sam Tung Uk Museum, 2 Kwu Uk Lane, Tsuen Wan, New Territories, or submit application documents via the website of GovHK (eform.cefs.gov.hk/form/lcs118/en). The deadline for applications is noon on February 15, 2023 (Wednesday). For enquiries, please contact the ICH Office at 2267 1971.
