Intangible cultural heritage (ICH) encompasses the underlying fabric of our lives - those stories, skills, traditions, ways of doing things, ways of speaking, and ways of interacting with each other and the environment. It does not always leave a material record behind, but rather is passed from person to person and generation to generation.
Any photograph that represents ICH within Sakatchewan will be considered.
