- ICD Institute for Cultural Diplomacy presents The Language of Art and MusicThe Language of Art and Music:
“An International Symposium on the Potential for Artistic Expression to Cross Cultural Barriers”
(International Conference, Berlin, 17th - 20th February, 2011)
The use of culture and art to promote dialogue and understanding is a field that, though the subject of much scholarly attention, has had little impact on the behavior and activities of national governments and other stakeholders in international relations. Moreover, whilst there is a widespread agreement of the value of culture and art in raising awareness of cultural differences, there is less understanding of the potential for culture and art to offer a neutral platform for mutual cultural exchange, to transform cultural differences and unite people through emotions. "The Language of Art and Music" will work to bridge the gap between theory and practice by bringing together artists with academic experts from the field and key figures in international relations to discuss the importance of these artistic disciplines.
Speakers for the Conference include:
Cecilie Broch Knudsen - Artist and rector of the Oslo National Academy of the Arts
