Even if the transmission way of the (ICH) is always intergenerational, between generations, it hasn’t always worked in the same way and neither had the same weakness. In general terms, there should be a difference between a collective transmission (cultural agents and collective informants) and a more personal and initiation transmission (person-person or teacher-learner).
Culture agents’ network
Our aim is to propel the cultural agents’ network in every area of the ICH, being many of them damaged by difficulties in the generational renewal. The Archive is a technological platform who allows the visibility of their work.
