What is the role of cultural diplomacy in this polarised and divided world? How can we foster a better understanding between cultures and nations and how can cultural diplomacy pave the way to wider cooperation and dialogue?

During this seminar we will examine the role of the cultural diplomacy, learn how we can foster an effective cultural dialogue, and examine the role of art and artists in shaping Ireland’s image (North and South) in the international context.

The event will include a keynote presentation on the Art of Soft Power by Evgeniya Ravtsova, International Programmes Manager, Victoria and Albert Museum, followed by a panel discussion with Sheena Barrett, Head of Research and Learning, Irish Museum of Modern Art; Cian Smyth, Arts and Culture Manager, Ulster Presents; and Richard Williams, Chief Executive, Northern Ireland Screen.
