The identification of intangible cultural heritage was defined in Paris Convention by UNESCO (2003). According to the text of the Convention, it is recommended that expert agents and the local community participate in the process of inventorying this type of heritage. However, there is a lack of consensus to establish a methodology that involves both of them in these processes. In the scientific literature, different researchers have developed the identification of intangible cultural heritage from the city scale, but in general, they do not focus on the importance of the local neighbourhood network and social communities. This research allows the implementation of a methodology for the identification of intangible cultural heritage through the collaborative participation of expert agents and local community from the neighbourhood scale. To this end, a consensual process has been followed with the stakeholders based on semi-structured interviews and workshops. Based on the practice of these participatory actions, a collaborative document has been drawn up for the inventorying of intangible cultural heritage according to Annex 2 of Guidance Note on Inventorying Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO. This method has been tested in Fontanalla neighbourhood, in Malaga, where the crafts of pottery and stained glass have been identified as intangible assets in this area of the city. The inclusion of the inventory in an official website of the municipal cultural heritage has enabled its dissemination in different educational areas for the citizenship.
