Europe Now-Europe Next

11 February - 12 March 2009 - meeting
Funded under the European Union 2000 Culture Programme


Europe today is a meeting place of many cultures. In ‘Intercultural Dialogue’ we take the point of view of the artists and cultural practitioners who are engaged in those meetings, working in collaboration with artists from outside their country. Some are European artists who share their experiences of playing host to artists from other countries, or of visiting those countries to collaborate with artists. Artists from outside Europe also share their perspective on collaborating with European artists and engaging with the places. In an increasingly global and interdependent world, the ability to enter into respectful dialogue is a vital skill for nations, communities and individuals. ‘Intercultural Dialogue’ starts with the recognition of difference and multiplicity in the world and approaches these multiple viewpoints with a desire to learn from those who may see the world differently. ‘Intercultural Dialogue’ shares the learning from specific projects and the expertise of artists and practitioners in this aspect of international working.
