He Zhengjun told the reporter :“ the about-to-start project, being the first one in China, finally finds a home for near 10,000 intangible heritages in Sichuan.” Sichuan Intangible Cultural Heritage Center was founded at the end of 2008 and officially started working in Sichuan Museum in Jan. 2010, responsible for the protection, inheritance, training, publicity, exhibition and research of intangible heritages in Sichuan. At the beginning of 2010, Sichuan government listed the building of the center as priority.

The Center will set up Qiang culture exhibition and other exhibitions, using real objects, live exhibition and other methods to present the intangible heritages.
