Cultural diplomacy beyond showcasing : Brussels as a case-study | Culture Meet-up #40 |

mercredi 28 novembre | Ambassade d’Espagne, Bruxelles

On this occasion, Meet-up Culture, in collaboration with the Cultural Services of the Embassy of Spain in Belgium would like to offer a practical discussion on the role of, especially, European national cultural institutes and cultural diplomatic services in relation to the cultural agenda and policies existing in Belgium, but more specifically taking Brussels as a “case study”, as a the space where all these federal and diplomatic cultural entities converge :
- Are national cultural institutes and other foreign cultural diplomatic services based in Brussels de facto part of the “institutional lasagna” ?
- What is the relation of these foreign cultural diplomacy institutions with the local cultural fabric of Brussels, beyond the Belgian federal institutions ?
- Beyond showcasing and one-shot collaborations, how can these national institutes and other diplomatic cultural Missions enhance long term cultural cooperation with Belgian institutions in charge of cultural diplomacy ?
