L’appel à récits sur le patrimoine européen

L’appel à récits sur le patrimoine européen, initiative qui fait partie des Journées européennes du patrimoine, vise à mettre en lumière la dimension européenne des sites du patrimoine et des travaux entrepris dans ce domaine par les communautés en Europe. Les « récits » en question sont des histoires passées ou actuelles en lien avec le patrimoine européen que les communautés souhaitent partager et, dans un second temps, éventuellement transformer en un projet qui servirait leur cause. L’appel à récits sur le patrimoine européen figure parmi les initiatives clés lancées dans le cadre de l’Année européenne du patrimoine culturel (2018), placée sous deux thèmes : « L’Année européenne du patrimoine culturel 2018 : l’art du partage » et « Notre patrimoine : à la croisée du passé et du futur ». Dans la mesure où il relève de la vision commune de valeurs européennes partagées, l’appel s’adresse aussi aux lauréats du Prix européen du patrimoine/Prix Europa Nostra et aux sites ayant reçu le label du patrimoine européen.
