Sejnane pottery bids for UNESCO’s World Intangible Cultural Heritage

Tunisia’s Permanent Delegate to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) Ghazi Gherairi submitted Friday afternoon to the Commission for the UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage the registration file of Sejnane Pottery in the World List of Intangible Cultural Heritage.

Ghazi Gherairi told TAP that the registration of Sejnane pottery in the World List of Intangible Heritage “is very important” since “Tunisia has not yet registered in the World Intangible Heritage List “.

He added that Tunisia has presented a file so that the work and the know-how of Sejnane’s women in the pottery are “registered in the pantheon of the intangible cultural heritage of Humanity”. He said that: “Videos and images were introduced into the file”.

Head of the Intangible Cultural Heritage Section at the UNESCO Tim Curtis told Tap that “the file will be dealt with this year and next year by an assessment body composed of 12 members from 6 regions of UNESCO “. The commission will give an opinion which will be validated by the UNESCO Intergovernmental Committee in 2018, adds Tim Curtis.
