AR&PA, Iberian Biennial of Cultural Heritage, celebrates 25 years.  

In this period it has consolidated itself as a stable event and as a benchmark in the cultural heritage sector.  

With its editions in Castile and León and in Portugal, since 2016, AR&PA is a symbol of participation, encounter, exchange, communication, debate, reflection, learning, dissemination and education in cultural heritage.  

In the professional field, it is a forum where technical criteria for managing cultural heritage, the constant application of new technologies and innovative proposals are addressed. It is a unique opportunity to exchange initiatives, projects and experiences, but also to establish business agreements and collaboration agreements. 

From the social point of view, it means bringing the cultural heritage, in an educational and fun way, to people of all ages. Initiatives for the youngest, developed from plastic, creative and inquiry activities, using the attraction of new technologies and digital applications. For families shared activities between parents and children, shows, participation games, ingenuity and discovery.  

AR&PA has been progressively enriched with the participation of national and international institutions and public and private entities.  

AR&PA has become a collective creation, always evolving, seeking to adapt to the new challenges posed by changes in a dynamic society, with a strong presence of digital technologies and new communication and knowledge-sharing systems.  

AR&PA has an international scope, is a founding member of the HERIFAIRS EUROPA Network, The first European Network of Heritage Fairs  

 The AR&PA Biennial is an event that periodically allows reflection on these management processes, strengthen links with society and establish international cooperation plans to establish networks and exchange innovative initiatives that strengthen the role of the cultural heritage sector in education and economic development.  

From the AR&PA organization we invite you to participate in the 2024 edition, which will be held in November in the city of Valladolid and to cooperate in the various initiatives.
