14 Oct. 2015: Open conference organised by EUNIC Norway in Litteraturhuset "Culture and Migration"

14 October 2015 (9am -3:30pm): Open conference organised by EUNIC Norway in Litteraturhuset
Culture and Migration. How can cultural institutions in Europe contribute to an intercultural society?

Europe is facing nowadays very important issues on migration, identity and mobility. The political response on immigration has till now been confined to a security problem. Nevertheless, Europe must also step up to the challenge of deepening its knowledge and awareness of its own cultural diversity and try to shape a possible European identity steeped in diversities. Through few European examples this seminar will try to answer the following questions via an interdisciplinary approach: How can intercultural dialogue, culture and arts, lead to a better understanding of cultural diversity and migration? More specifically: how museum and cultural programming can help us to think differently the question of migration, mobility and identity?
