Building a multimedia database of original traditional cultural and artistic creators.

Presentation of elements of intangible cultural heritage (NKB) in a specific locality.
NKB elements have their heirs. The heirs promote and pass on the elements of the NKB, which they inherited, to the younger generations. Places where you can see elements of the NKB are usually events for the presentation of traditional cultural heritage or folklore festivals. Folklore festivals are usually organized in one place and have their own organizers.
