How Soon Is Now?

Organiser: Intercult

This is the third NFI conference during 2008. After a broad mapping in Copenhagen, and a more focused meeting in Drammen it is now time to sum up conclusions and present recommendations for a continued development of Nordic interculture. The programme includes panel debates, discussions and break-out sessions, so that participants can have a good understanding of NFI's roll from an international perspective. However, this is not an exclusively cultural affair. The conference will also address issues such as democracy, human rights, multilingualism, media and education.
