Report of the 2012 Cultural Diplomacy Conference

The EUNIC Cultural Diplomacy Conference “Cultural Diplomacy in a Changing World: How to Respond to the Current Challenges” is an annual event organized by EUNIC London with the support of the European Commission’s Representation in the UK.

It draws on the experience and achievements brought about by two previous Cultural Diplomacy Seminars, also organized by EUNIC London, where noted cultural diplomats, cultural managers, artists, experts, and academics, coming from the EU and beyond, reflected on key aspects of cultural diplomacy and set forth creative responses to its challenges.

This year, the event took place on June the 28th, coordinated by the Romanian Cultural Institute in collaboration with the British Council and EUNIC Londonmembers.

The Report of the 2012 Cultural Diplomacy Conference is now available online, together with an addendum on international cultural cooperation, authored by colleagues from Goethe-Institute. Also, follow the conference proceedings in full, video and audio versions here.
