UNESCO to list batik in 'Intangible Cultural Heritage'

03
Oct '09
After a long and complex process, UNESCO, a world cultural body will ultimately list 'Batik' as an Indonesian cultural heritage, with the spirit of its 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage.

UNESCO will announce its recognisation for batik as a unique hallmark of Indonesian heritage, in a meeting of the Intergovernmental Committee for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage to be held in Abu Dhabi.

This recognition is in order to support the Indonesian culture and the President of the country Mr. Susilo Yudhoyono appealed Indonesian people to wear batik on a regular basis. In the evaluation process, UNESCO gives like importance to the documentation from both, experts and communities.

The final decision on including the item in the list of intangible cultural heritage is the exclusive privilege of UNESCO's Intergovernmental Committee, which will declare its decision at the meeting in Abu Dhabi.

However, the original decision regarding the candidacy of batik for inclusion in the list of intangible cultural heritage was made by UNESCO's subsidiary body, comprising of Kenya, South Korea, the United Arab Emirates, Turkey, Mexico and Estonia.
