The SomVallBas cultural sustainbility project holds 800 hours of interviews conducted in the summer of 2019. The Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage contracted local researchers and scholars to document the intangible heritage of the Vall d’en Bas, including tradition bearers, artisans, customs, places, objects, events, and emergent expressions.

The documentation reveals landscape as intangible heritage to the people of the Vall d’en Bas. The Ralph Rinzler Folklife Archives and Collections houses the collection. All materials have been shared with the community.

SomVallBas is a partnership between the Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage; Can Trona, a local institution managed by the city hall of the Vall d’en Bas; and the Directorate General of Popular Culture and Cultural Associations of the Department of Culture of the Generalitat of Catalonia.
