Relevant experts and inheritors of the intangible cultural heritage of the Miao minority recently attended the 2018 Colorful Guizhou Traditional Crafts Promotion and Exchange Activity in Guiyang, capital of southwest China's Guizhou Province, with an aim to promote the protection of traditional Miao crafts, along with some entrepreneurs and ethnic singers of the Miao minority.
In order to better implement the spirit of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and the Revitalization Plan of Traditional Chinese Arts and Crafts, the Guizhou Provincial Department of Culture and the Guizhou Miao Society held an activity to boost the creative transformation and innovative development of traditional crafts of Guizhou, with support from the Guizhou Workstation of Traditional Crafts and Guizhou Intangible Cultural Heritage Protection Center.
At the event, the inheritors of the intangible cultural heritage of the Miao minority shared their views on innovation and brand-creation of the traditional crafts of the Miao ethnic group, with representatives including Miao entrepreneurs and designers.
Meanwhile, the organizers of the activity also visited the Guizhou Intangible Cultural Heritage Exposition, Dyeing and Embroidery Experience Hall, and the Guizhou Workstation of Traditional Crafts.
In recent years, the local government has actively promoted training to boost the development of traditional crafts, including batik skills, hand-made paper products, embroidery, and terracotta, which can help people start their own businesses and find employment.
