The Abbaye aux Dames, located in Saintes in southwest France, is a French “1901 Association”.
Constructed in the 11th Century, the abbey itself is today a music school, hostel (in the historical monument), provider of social housing, and classical concert venue.
For over 40 years, music lovers have been attending the abbey to enjoy and learn about music, with a special emphasis on the use of period instruments.
The cooperation project “Heritage Interpretation & Innovative Practices” (HIIP) aims to design and construct a new prototype of “Music and Heritage Discovery Tour” at the Abbaye aux Dames – Cité Musicale in Saintes (France). Thanks to an innovative approach in terms of heritage interpretation, digital technologies and audience development with local communities, the Abbaye aux Dames and its coorganisers would like to experiment this prototype with different European historical monuments.
The project will involve the creation of a consortium of European organisations, headed up by the Abbaye itself, assisted by inter-sectorial and transnational co-organisers, associated partners, and their various suppliers.
