In 2023, AR&PA returns to Angra do Heroísmo, on Terceira Island – Azores, and is dedicated to the theme of TECHNOLOGY & PATRIMONY. The event will take place in the historic centre of Angra do Heroísmo from 12 to 15 October 2023. Angra do Heroísmo is particularly important because it was inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List in December 1983 – the first of its kind in the country – due to the geostrategic position of its harbour, an obligatory stopover for the African and Indian fleets and a landmark in the universal history of maritime explorations. This historic character of the city was preserved after the 1980 earthquake. In 2023, in celebration of the 40th anniversary of UNESCO’s award, Angra do Heroísmo will host the benchmark event for the Cultural Heritage sector. This year’s edition of AR&PA – Iberian Biennial of Cultural Heritage also celebrates the event’s 10th anniversary in Portugal. The exhibition area, the diversity of scientific and professional activities and the social, recreational and educational programme result in a unique event that demonstrates how Cultural Heritage can be an inexhaustible source of inspiration for everyone!
