Extended Learning Session: Advancing the Principles of Cultural Diplomacy through Arts-Based Practice: Creating Human Bonds
Cultural diplomacy, as defined by The Berlin Institute for Cultural Diplomacy, includes three principles: Respect of Cultural Diversity; Global Intercultural Dialogue; Justice, Equality and interdependence. Cultural diplomacy is vital in intercultural relations.
Arts-based approaches are particularly effective for cultural diplomacy. Both European and US professionals will actively engage participants in two arts-based practices for developing cultural diplomacy in college students including, first, a music performance that focuses on understanding and empathy across cultural groups, and, second, a playful exploration of our body language ‘personality’ in intercultural communication.
