Introduction to Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH)
Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) is a tradition, practice, or living expression of a group or community. In Scotland, we use an inclusive approach to ICH which respects the diversity of Scotland's communities. We refer to 'ICH in Scotland' rather than 'Scottish ICH'.
