28th International Cultural Heritage Fair

The event, which celebrates its 28th edition this year, was launched in 1994 under the impetus of Pierre Chevalier, President of textile restoration company Chevalier Conservation and Chairman of the Société d'Encouragement aux Métiers d'Art (SEMA) for 14 years. The fair also owes its development to Jean-Pierre Jouet, founder of the major French cultural fairs.

In 2009, the Salon International du Patrimoine Culturel was taken over by Ateliers d'Art de France, with the same objective in mind: to continue along the same path and further develop the event.

The show is a key reference point for the sector, welcoming professionals involved in the restoration, preservation and enhancement of built and non-built heritage. It's a meeting place that promotes the economic development of arts and crafts and heritage activities, and also attracts enthusiastic visitors.

Each year, the show focuses on a central theme, providing an in-depth look at the challenges facing the heritage sector. The theme of 2022 was sustainable development. This 28th edition focuses on the issue of transmission. The cornerstone of the notion of heritage, it is a challenge that revolves around both the material transmission of companies and goods, and the intangible transmission of know-how.

A program focused on the transmission of heritage

In 2022, the Salon International du Patrimoine Culturel brought together around the theme of sustainable development almost 19,000 visitors over 4 days, more than 300 exhibitors, some 50 conferences, 9 awards ceremonies and some 30 demonstrations. Expect no less this year for this edition focused on the challenge of transmission.

All facets of this fundamental concept will be covered in the show's program.

  • Conferences and round-table discussions led by experts in the field provide a platform for reflection and debate, leading to collective action on the subject. In fact, the show has a number of long-standing partners who are helping to promote the idea of safeguarding and protecting our heritage.
  • The awards ceremonies are an opportunity to discover new talents selected by a jury of experts, such as the winners of the Prix de la Jeune Création Métiers d'Art 2023 from "Atelier Font&Romani", who make hybrid textile objects using the soapmaking technique.
  • And let's not forget the skills demonstrations, which are part of the intangible transmission of heritage to maintain the culture around art workshops and factories.
