UNESCO defines the intangible culture as practices, representations, expressions, knowledge, skills that communities recognize as part of their cultural heritage. This intangible cultural heritage, transmitted from generation to generation, is constantly recreated by communities and groups in response to their environment, their interaction with nature and their history, and provides them with a sense of identity and continuity, thus promoting respect for cultural diversity and human creativity.

In Slovenia it is usually divided in the following areas:

Its safeguarding is based on the UNESCO Convention (2003) and the state law on natural and cultural heritage (2008) and is coordinated by the Slovene Ethnographic Museum.

Currently the national register lists over 30 items of Slovene intangible heritage (among them the Škofja Loka Passion Play, the Laufarija in Cerkno) and the procession of the Kurent - Korant.


2 Reels - Association for Reanimation of Storytelling

The 2 Reels - Association for Reanimation of Storytelling was born in 2007 out of the wish to cultivate and to promote storytelling in all its forms. It brings together 2 spheres of activity bound by their mutual aim to cultivate the telling of stories: Animateka International Animated Film Festival and the Radio Student programme Za 2 groša fantazije ("A Twopence of Imagination"). A significant part of the association's activities is dedicated to educational programmes for adults and children, as stories – be they in the form of film, written word, sound recording or live storytelling – should come to life and live on among people.
