The Annual Advisory Forum in Colmar


Decidedly, Alsace is our favourite destination for the autumn! After the September training the annual forum will take place in Colmar, just half an hour away from Strasbourg.


This will be another occasion for encounters with the Council of Europe, as Luxembourgís Permanent Representation in Strasbourg has proposed to coordinate an exhibition of the cultural route panels in the Palais de líEurope and a ceremony to mark the 25th anniversary of the programme.


This will take place on 21 November, after which the Forum participants will be taken to Colmar for the two-day conference. The Haute Alsace Tourist Office will be organising the programme, and the French Ministry for Culture is coordinating a pilot committee to discuss proposals for themes of workshops and plenary sessions.


The first meeting of the committee is set for July 16th in Paris, where I will make suggestions for the content of the forum.


Please send any proposals you may have for discussions or contributions, your input is more than welcome!
