Strasbourg 2022

12th European Registrars Conference

3-5 November 2022

Strasbourg Convention + Exhibition Centre

The 12th European Congress of Registrars took place on the revised dates of the 3 – 5 November 2022 at the Strasbourg Convention + Exhibition Centre.
The organization of ERC2022 benefits from the support of the city of Strasbourg and the Grand Est Region, as part of the Culture fund of the 2021-2023 Strasbourg European Capital Three-Year Contract.
22 years after the Second European Conference of Registrar held in Paris in November 2000, it is an anniversary that we celebrated together. This ERC allowed us to broaden the scope of our reflections on the professional challenges that we have to manage and for which we develop specific professional skills.
Our resilient capacity and our adaptation will have to be questioned and analyzed from a socio-professional point of view and through the working links that we have been able to maintain. The new normal, which is imposed on us, will have to be built on the memories of our old existences and link the global and the local.
The FUTURE OF TOMORROW could not exist without taking action on sustainable development and being involved in the eco-responsibility of our industry. These responsibilities for the registrars and the heritage professionals with whom they work.
Those involved in presentation and conservation have to respond by creating agencies, specifics training in universities to train new generations of collection and exhibition managers.
Moreover, Registrars do not only work in museums or heritage institutions. They are present in art galleries, private foundations, and universities so as better meet the needs and requirements of a changing international scene.
Together, through the programming of this ERC, networking and opportunities to explore the city that we propose to you, analyze these challenges in the present and those, which wait for us!
