Researchers in southwest China’s Tibet Autonomous Region are racing against the clock to digitize intangible cultural heritage as the region’s Tibetan folk masters reach old age. Since 2005, the autonomous region has collected more than 100,000 stories, 1,500 videos and 40,000 photos of intangible cultural heritage for a digital database. Among them, a Tibetan opera and “The Epic of King Gesar” have been listed as World Intangible Cultural Heritage items by UNESCO.
