Co-organiser: Centre européen d’art et de civilisation médiévale de Conques
The “Centre européen d’art et de civilisation médiévale de Conques”, managed by the association ADECC, has been founded in 2003 thank to the contribution of the Ministry for Culture and aims at implementing projects of artistic education and cultural dissemination through the valorisation of medieval heritage, taking its moves from the prestigious site of Conques.
Starting in 2003, a new artistic and cultural project has been developed in order to create parallels and synergies between cultural heritage and artistic creation. The adoption of a gaze linked to the present, thank to the contemporary creation under all its forms, allows to produce an “added value” to the Conques exceptional heritage. To give an example, the stained glass windows by Pierre Soulages, associated to the Sainte-Foy Roman abbey, let a XX Century light to get in and illuminate Medieval Art.
