Descrizione evento


The third international seminar of the CReW Project is going to take place in Stuttgart, Germany on April 25 and 26, 2019. The conference will be kindly hosted by ifa (Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen), Germany’s oldest organisation for international cultural relations. Our attendees -both local and non-local cultural diplomats, practitioners, and leading scholars- will deal with the work stream “Promoting culture and inter-cultural dialogue for peaceful inter-community relations” of the joint communication Towards a EU strategy for international cultural relations (JOIN (2016) 29 final).

The Cultural Relations at Work (CReW) project is financed by the Erasmus+ Programme, Jean Monnet Activities (EAC-A03-2016). It is coordinated by the University of Siena in partnership with EUNIC Global. CReW is intended to foster the dialogue between the academic world and policymakers as well as to cross-fertilize the academic work with recent practices and to inform these with the results of the academic research. The project is designed with two aims in mind: first, to facilitate the exchange of knowledge, skills and experiences in the field of cultural diplomacy to contribute to a deeper understanding of the issue, with a focus on EU international cultural relations; second, to stimulate the reflection, awareness, training, monitoring and evaluation of cultural diplomacy policies.
