In 2023, on the occasion of its 50th anniversary, the ACCR reaffirms the specific identity of the CCR network: a sustainable, inclusive and innovative approach to heritage.

Revitalizing the heritage of tomorrow is the common thread of the year 2023 punctuated by events inviting collective reflection on heritage as a resource for human development and biodiversity and as a place of welcome for foreign and refugee artists. e.s.

As part of the celebration and reflections on the 50th anniversary of the ACCR under the theme “Reviving the heritage of tomorrow”, the ACCR - in partnership with the Ministry of Culture, Relais Culture Europe, the FNCC and La Saline royal d'Arc-et-Senans - organizes the European Heritage and Creation Meetings in the Face of Contemporary Transitions from Thursday 16 to Saturday 18 November 2023 at the Royal Saltworks of Arc-et-Senans (25).

The year 2023 was rich in sectoral discussions on the transitions underway or to be considered in all areas; the European Meetings at the Royal Saltworks of Arc-et-Senans at the end of the year will echo this and, as much as possible, will offer a summary.

Driven for 50 years by experimentation and the daily practice of transversality and multidisciplinarity, the ACCR and the CCR network aim to think collectively, with their partners, about possible futures and common horizons.

Through their synthesis between a heritage site and a cultural project linked to its territory and its inhabitants, the CCRs are part of a reflection and an approach to built, intangible and natural heritage as resources for human development, biodiversity and the influence of territories. The Royal Saltworks of Arc-et-Senans, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and founding member of the ACCR network, was chosen as the setting for these meetings because of its emblematic role as a place of convergence between tradition and innovation.

During the European Meetings, the ACCR will unveil its 50th anniversary manifesto.

Through this manifesto, the ACCR wished to reaffirm its commitments to a living and inclusive heritage. This edition is an opportunity to look back on the history of the network and the label, addressing its developments, while looking ahead to the fifty years to come.

Alternating testimonies, archive texts, interviews with personalities active within the network as well as explanations and illustrations of the missions and values of the CCR network, the book allows us to deploy the scope of the Centers' field of action.

Created in France in 1973, the ACCR promotes the contemporary reuse of monuments and heritage sites as places of artistic creation, transmission, research and hospitality. It acts for the conservation of sites by reinventing these places, investing them with the dynamism of cultural projects and the creativity of artists, by allowing meetings with and between residents.

In 2023, on the occasion of its 50th anniversary, the ACCR reaffirms the specific identity of the CCR network: a sustainable, inclusive and innovative approach to heritage with the common thread and manifesto: Revitalizing the heritage of tomorrow.
