The Armenian Heritage Centre

A place for citizens

The Armenian Heritage Centre is a Valence Romans Agglo cultural facility. Throughout the year, this singular place hosts exhibitions, meetings and encounters which offer a different perspective on our world.

Taking Armenian history as a starting point, The Armenian Heritage Centre focuses more widely on the history of peoples and cultures. It uses territorial history as a means of addressing the society of today which surrounds us and investigating it in the context of the past. First and foremost, it aims to be place for citizens which is open to the 21st century and which seeks to cater for a variety of audiences.

Its objectives:

- To raise awareness of the history of the Armenian diaspora by placing it into the context of other, more contemporary migrations

- To combat discrimination and, as part of this, to teach and help people to live as a community

- To interpret current international affairs in relation to popular memory and contemporary conflicts

- To contribute to developing research and disseminating knowledge
