Council of Europe cultural itinerary

Created in 1949, the Council of Europe works, with its 47 member states bringing together more than 830 million inhabitants, to strengthen human rights, democracy and the rule of law across the continent and beyond. of the. It has developed a system of protection, the best known of which is the European Court of Human Rights. It is one of the first international institutions to have opened its doors to the countries of Central and Eastern Europe after the fall of the Berlin Wall. The headquarters of the Council of Europe is in Strasbourg.

The Council of Europe’s Cultural Routes program was launched in 1987 to demonstrate, through travel in time and space, how the heritage of different European countries contributes to a common cultural heritage. This program acts as a channel for intercultural dialogue; it promotes better knowledge and understanding of European cultural identity by preserving and promoting natural and cultural heritage as a factor in improving the living environment and a source of human, social and local development.
As of January 1, 2024, there are 48 certified Cultural Routes bringing together 41 countries, more than 3,000 sites in Europe and more than 1,500 local authorities, 90% of which are in rural areas. The operation of the entire network of these Itineraries is punctuated by two important annual meetings: a Training Academy in June and a Forum in September-October.

The activities mainly aim to promote exchanges in sustainable tourism and European citizenship; the routes are anchored in a large network promoting synergies between local, regional and national authorities. The program also benefits from solid cooperation with the European Union as well as important international organizations.

In France, crossed by more than 30 routes, the network’s activities benefit from the support of the Ministry of Culture.

Euro Art

Euroart is the European Federation of Artists’ Colonies. It was created in 1994 under the auspices of the European Parliament and the European Commission. Today it brings together around 90 organizations, cities, museums, artistic associations in 15 European countries. It was granted participatory status with the Council of Europe in 2021: as such, Euroart is a member of the Conference of International Non-Governmental Organizations (INGOs) of the Council of Europe.

Euroart’s objectives are multiple: the Association ensures the conservation and promotion of the artistic heritage of European artists’ colonies, some of which have existed since the first half of the 19th century. It promotes the exchange of artists and researchers and provides scholarships to young people. Its members are organizing joint exhibitions as was the case in 2023 in Schwaan (Germany), Domburg (Netherlands) and Barbizon (France).

The activities of Impressionisms Routes and Euroart are very complementary…
