The Steering Committee of the Enlarged Partial Agreement of the Council of Europe, meeting on 19 April 2018 in Luxembourg, decided to certify Impressionisms Routes (The Routes of Impressionisms in Europe) as a Cultural Route of the Council of Europe.
The Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe are an invitation to travel and discover the rich and diverse heritage of the continent, promoting the rapprochement of people in places of history and heritage. They carry the values of the Council of Europe : human rights, cultural diversity, intercultural dialogue and cross-border exchanges.
More than 30 cultural itineraries today offer a multitude of cultural and educational activities since the creation of the first and most famous of them : The Way of Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle.
This European recognition rewards more years of work carried out within the framework of the Association EAU & LUMIERE.
The Impressionisms Routes network now operational in several European countries in constant widening.

The famous L'Estaque site located north of the city of Marseille is, as everyone knows, a real "crossroads" of Impressionism and Modern Art ... It inspired the works of Paul Cézanne, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Georges Braque, André Derain and the creators of Fauvism and Cubism ...
In partnership with the "Impressionisms Routes ©" project, the local cultural associations and the city council of the 15th and 16th arrondissements of Marseille have decided to work on the development of this site known and appreciated by the whole world.
The exhibition: "From the Seine to Marseille l'Estaque, from Impressionism to Modern Art" is planned to be presented at the Visual Arts Center of L'Estaque from 5 to 18 September 2018.
This is a first realization demonstrating the willingness of local officials to fully integrate the project "Impressionisms Routes ©"
