Materiel meets Intangible Heritage for amsterdam Pride


Materiel meets Intangible Heritage during the addition ceremony at Museumplein Pride Amsterdam enters the Intangible Heritage Inventory of the Netherlands Pride Amsterdam is officially credited to the Intangible Heritage Inventory of the Netherlands.
The Intangible Heritage Netherlands Knowledge Center announced this this morning. Addition to the Intangible Heritage Inventory of the Netherlands indicates that a heritage community (in this case the Pride community) is actively and consciously committed to the future of its intangible heritage. It contributes to awareness of the importance of this heritage within and outside the community. The Intangible Heritage Inventory of the Netherlands is a means to help safeguard the heritage.

“I am proud that Pride Amsterdam is being included in the inventory. We describe new steps in the history of pride by describing it, ”says director Lucien Spee of the Amsterdam Gay Pride foundation. “Our efforts are now receiving official recognition.
We are the first pride in the world to take this step. Because we are on this list, we send the signal that together we want to pass pride on to new generations and possibly resolve bottlenecks in the transfer to subsequent generations.
Ultimately we also want to be on the International Unesco list for intangible heritage. ”The announcement comes on the eve of the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall on June 28. "This year we are commemorating the Stonewall riots, which broke out in New York 50 years ago." A large delegation from Pride Amsterdam in New York is present at "World Pride". Sunday is the New York Parade.

Broadly supported Intangible heritage comprises cultural expressions that are experienced by heritage communities as heritage and give a sense of identity and continuity.
This intangible heritage is constantly redesigned in connection with social changes and in interaction with the social environment and passed on from generation to generation. In 2012, the government ratified the UNESCO Convention on the Protection of the Intangible Cultural Heritage. Incidentally, it is not about what heritage professionals think is important, or of exceptional value, or typically Dutch. It is about a group of people recognizing a tradition as heritage and consciously and actively committed to safeguarding that intangible heritage.
After months of preparation, Amsterdam Gay Pride Foundation was able to successfully deliver a care plan with which Pride Amsterdam was officially nominated last May. The premise was supported by the College of Mayor and Aldermen of Amsterdam, COC Amsterdam & Surrounding Areas, Transgender Network Netherlands, Gay Business Amsterdam, COC Netherlands, IHLIA LGBT Heritage, Homomonument Foundation and Pride & Sports.

The Netherlands Intangible Heritage Knowledge Center (KIEN) implements the 2003 UNESCO Convention in the Netherlands. One of the obligations is to compile an inventory of intangible heritage. In the Netherlands, a bottom-up procedure has been chosen for which the heritage communities themselves present their intangible heritage. The Knowledge Center offers support, among other things, by offering training courses to strengthen heritage communities in the care of their intangible heritage.
