The Language of Art and Music: Berlin, 17th-20th February 2011

Discussion in 'Professional development' started by ICDpress, Jan 13, 2011.

  1. Please see below for details:

    The 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:

    Helena Bonham Carter - Actress.
    John Holden - Visiting Professor at City University Former Head of Culture at Demos.
    Neil MacGregor OM - Art historian; Museum Director & Chairman of the 'World Collections Programme?; Former Director of the National Gallery in London; Former Director of the British Museum
    Jan Vogler - Renowned Violinist & Cellist

    and many more!
