APTCVC (Portuguese Association of Ceramic Cities and Villages), that joined AEuCC since January 2021, opens its website with information on its members, the activities developed recently and periodic information on ceramic issues in the country and in Europe, the AEuCC.
APTCVC presents its site due to the wide dissemination actions for the conservation and enhancement of this cultural heritage, developed by the 18 associated municipalities: Alcobaça, Aveiro, Barcelos, Batalha, Caldas da Rainha, Condeixa-a-Nova, Ílhavo, Leiria, Mafra, Montemor-o-Novo, Oliveira do Bairro, Porto de Mós, Redondo, Reguengos de Monsaraz, Tondela, Viana do Alentejo, Viana do Castelo and Vila Nova de Poiares.
This Association aims to promote and foster the economic, touristic and cultural heritage development of the territories with a wide ceramic expression, covered by the member municipalities, contributing to the strengthening of cultural identity and the conservation of collective memory, guaranteeing the notoriety of this art, internally and externally. The dissemination of this heritage, combining the various synergies between municipalities and important honorary members who have joined it, will find in this means of communication the appropriate way to spread the protection and promotion of this cultural heritage at a national and international level.
Note that on April 20th, 2021, the date of the 3rd anniversary of APTCVC, a WEBINAR was held on the theme “PORTUGUESE CERAMICS – SUSTAINABILITY AND RESILIENCE IN THE GLOBAL WORLD” with the participation of Portuguese potters, the Secretary of State for the enhancement of the Interior and representatives of AEuCC and AeCC.
