Culturelink Newsletter Special Issue / November 2008

Dear friends, dear colleagues,

The Culturelink Network invites you to participate in the round table entitled Intercultural Dialogue and Digital Culture, to be held in Zagreb, Croatia, on 20-21 November 2008, marking the European Year of Intercultural Dialogue (EYID) 2008. The event aims to discuss and share knowledge about the possibilities that digital culture provides for intercultural dialogue and to identify examples of existing good practices that allow for participation of users in virtual cultural projects, thus enabling democratic participation of citizens in the building of virtual/digital culture.

We feel that issues related to digital culture and intercultural dialogue are insufficiently discussed and researched. In the roundtable discussions, we hope to clarify issues that often have diverse and imprecise meanings, focusing on the following topics:

  • First Session: Intercultural Dialogue The Path Towards a Dynamic and Open Society
  • Second Session: Understanding Intercultural Dialogue in the Digital Age
  • Third Session: Digital Culture Shared Space and Promotor for Intercultural Dialogue?
  • Fourth Session: Digital Culture Participatory Practices: Does the Cultural Sector Recognize the Current Trends as a Tool for Enabling Intercultural Dialogue?

The Round Table is supported by UNESCO-BRESCE, the Croatian Ministry of Culture and the City of Zagreb. The working language will be English.

The programme is available online at www.culturelink.org/conf/dialogue/dialogueprog.html and the Round Table background at www.culturelink.org/conf/dialogue/background.html.

We are looking forward to greeting you in Zagreb!

The Culturelink Team
