According to the local authorities, China's Huangnan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, will invest 3 million RMB to enhance its intangible cultural heritage protection in 2020.


It will also establish more than 20 intangible cultural inheritance and study centers to provide the platforms for inheritors to instruct students on intangible cultural techniques. In addition, it will be a good way to publicize local ethnic cultures to the public. Huangnan will further enrich its intangible cultural protection lists by adding more prefecture-level protection projects this year.


Huangnan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture locates in northwest China's Qinghai Province, which is a popular tourist destination featuring abundant Tibetan cultural elements. Huangnan is also the cradle of Regong arts, a UNESCO-listed intangible cultural heritage. The history of it can be traced back to the 10th century and includes thangka painting, sculptures, murals, and other Tibetan Buddhist art forms.
