• Network

With a national, European and international reach, the network of Heritage Sites for Culture (Centres culturels de rencontre or CCR in French) brings together around 40 members and partners around a shared issue – the dual promotion of a heritage site alongside a cultural and artistic project. The network has been coordinated by the ACCR (Association des Centres Culturels de Rencontre) since 1973.


The issues and themes addressed by the network include regional development, cultural transmission, professional integration, technological innovation, sustainable development, tourism and the creative industries, and the network represents a new approach to the promotion of heritage.
