Contribute to the Inventory

Belize’s ICH inventory is a mechanism for identifying, documenting, promoting and safeguarding our living heritage. Living heritage includes cultural forms which are alive and being continuously recreated, and passed on from one generation to the next. The Inventory is also a repository of supporting materials including audio-visual interviews, oral histories, recordings of events and practices, photographs, and other objects such as drawings and sketch patterns, which depict the forms of living heritage found in Belize.

The e-Inventory available and submission portal available on this site is a voluntary mechanism designed to encourage wide participation of communities and cultural stakeholders from across Belize in the inventorying process. It also provides a platform to highlight and share information about our living heritage.
