    This very rich fund is published and exposed in the form of newsletters, books, exhibitions and various animations of which you can have a preview on this site.
    BJA is also interested in today's life because: The Bessans of today is the old days of tomorrow.
    The association’s public presence is particularly intense during summer events (conferences, outings, stands, exhibitions). Those that can be maintained will be specified for 2020 according to the evolution of the health situation.
