In the spirit of the Faro Convention, the Association of Cultural Meeting Centers (ACCR) contributes to developing the expertise of the teams of the Cultural Meeting Centers (CCR) concerning the appropriation of heritage by all, for a renewed and lively approach to what constitutes “heritage”.

On a daily basis, the ACCR affirms its role of research, experimentation and innovation on themes common to the CCRs. Twice a year, the ACCR joins forces with a CCR for a festive moment of collective research anchored in the territory, allowing everyone to question themselves on contemporary social issues, art and heritage contributing to this reflection. Last May, the network met at the Center Culturel de Rencontre in Ambronay around the theme Young creators & professional integration: between European mobility and short circuits.

It has been coordinated since 1973 by the Association of Cultural Meeting Centers and integrates the issues of territorial development, cultural transmission, professional integration, technological innovation, sustainable development, tourism and creative industries, offering a vision innovation in the promotion of heritage.
