Conference Description:

Join world leaders, policy makers, corporate and media executives, diplomats, artists, cultural entrepreneurs, and philanthropists as they discuss the role of media, arts, and culture in promoting mutual understanding and sustainable human security. A very limited number of public passes will be made available.

The Aspen Institute and Centro Niemeyer are pleased to announce the second edition of the Aspen Cultural Diplomacy Forum to be held from September 15 to 17, 2009, in Aviles, Asturias, Spain. This premier convening on cultural diplomacy is an independent and worldwide program of the Aspen Institute's Global Initiative on Culture and Society. It will be hosted by the newly established Centro Niemeyer, also known as the Oscar Niemeyer International Cultural Center, which was designed by Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer and conceived as a magnet for talent, knowledge, and creativity.

In the face of an increasingly global interconnection of diplomacy challenges and opportunities, the annual Cultural Diplomacy Forum answers the need for a high-level global platform that is both neutral and action-oriented, and where trends and approaches can be thoroughly analyzed and workable strategies developed. Given the fundamental and indisputably growing relevance of culture to world concerns, the Forum provides a unique setting for world leaders to reflect on policies and actions - both public and private - that engage difference across societies, promote mutual understanding, enhance international relations, and sustain peace-building efforts. The Forum views cultural diplomacy as the development and use of media, arts, and cultural assets in international political, social, economic, and educational exchanges. Aware that the concept of cultural diplomacy was once perceived as a monopoly of governmental agencies, the Forum places great value in convening diverse stakeholders from the public sector, the business community, and civil society for dialogue, professional networking, stewardship, and cooperative engagement.
