About Us

Our History

The Centre national de l’audiovisuel (CNA), created in 1989, is a cultural institute at the crossroads of multiple and different institutions, and placed under the authority of the Ministry of Culture. Its mission is the safeguarding, development and promotion of Luxembourg's audiovisual and photographic heritage. CNA is also a museum, with two permanent collections on display Edward Steichen’s The Family of Man in Clervaux Castle in the north of the country, and The Bitter Years located in Dudelange on a renovated industrial site. These collections are complimented by rotating exhibitions in our gallery spaces.  
We also have a pedagogy department, which sets up various workshops and training opportunities for kids, adolescents, adults, as well as professionals. These are often in collaboration with international experts. Thus, the CNA is both an open platform for the general public and a professional institution.  
CNA’s drive is to ensure that all members of the public can access its sound, moving image, and photographic collections through exhibitions, publications, screenings, conferences and other events.
