The Pays de la Loire Region is launching a “Promoting Heritage” call for proposals in order to support projects which promote and play a part in the transmission of heritage. It is made up of an all-ages section and another for youth in order to enable young people to get to know, appropriate and promote cultural heritage. The first closing dates for entries are 23 February (youth section) and 23 March (all-ages section).

Section 1: all ages

The objectives of the call for proposals: 

  • Enable cultural heritage to play its full role as a social link and tool to open up the local areas,
  • Strengthen the cultural and tourist appeal of Pays de la Loire through its heritage,

  • Support collaborations between public and private stakeholders, including, in particular, heritage sites, artistic teams and venues in the local areas,
  • Promote the professionalisation of facilitators on heritage,
  • Improve the reception of the public at the Loire heritage sites,
