*Related to our previous post on Mémorial ACTe (MACTe)
<https://repeatingislands.com/2017/01/22/memorial-acte-in-the-words-of-jean-luc-melenchon/>
in Guadeloupe, the Council of Europe awarded their Museum Prize for 2017 to
the Mémorial ACTe. Many thanks to Peter Jordens for bringing this news to
our attention. Although it is from December 2016, the work of Mémorial ACTe
Musée de l’Esclavage’s work is ongoing; here are excerpts from “'Mémorial
ACTe, Caribbean Center of Expressions and Memory of the Slave Trade and
Slavery' wins the 2017 Council of Europe Museum Prize.”*

The museum was selected from a shortlist of three candidates by the Culture
Committee of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) at
a meeting in Paris today.

According to the rapporteur on the Museum Prize, Adele Gambaro (Italy,
ALDE), this “outstanding, stunning and innovative museum fits precisely
with the Council of Europe criteria. Initially conceived as a memorial, the
museum has become not only a living, dynamic place for memory of the
transatlantic slave trade and slavery (connecting Africa, the Americas and
Europe), but also a commemoration of the resilience of human beings. It
promotes tolerance and opens up in a creative way perspectives for the
future.”

The judging panel praised the founding principles of the museum, whose role
is to make the act of remembrance a means of producing a new society, with
the goal of providing intellectual tools for the fight against the social
and societal consequences of slavery such as racism, social exclusion,
inequality and contemporary forms of infringement of human rights.
