Call for Applications

(Berlin, 17th - 20th February 2011)

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:

Professor Adam Chmielewski - Director of the Institution of Culture Wrocław 2016, Rector, Wrocław University (tbc)
Dr. Anastasia Lazaridou - Deputy Director, Byzantine Museum, Athens

How do you figure? Do you know something about this that does not show up in this press release? Exploring other cultures is not a bad thing necessarily, it's where and how you do it that make the difference. Instituting Shari'i law in our country goes way past cross cultural relations, for example. That's cross cultural submission.
The United States of America is for citizens only! Everyone else OUT.
Criminalize asking party affilation for voter registration! End the "two party system"!

I'm questioning if this is someone just wanting to use our board for advertising. I considered removing it, but there's noting ugly about it. If this sort of stuff continues, I'm take care of it.
