[ Balkan | -s ]

Organised by the European Cultural Foundation (ECF and the dutch Humanist Institute for Cooperation with Developing Countries (HIVOS), the event The Heart of the Matter - The role of the arts and culture for the Balkans will take place on 1 December 2005 in the Vredespaleis (Peace Palace) in The Hague (BTW also the city of the ICTY...).
Starting from the recent political analysis by the International Commission on the Balkans (The Balkans in Europe's Future report can be downloaded at in the .pdf (+/- 1 MB) - Translations are available in Albanian, Bosnian, Macedonian and Serbian) participants will address the role of the arts and culture for the Balkans now and in the perspective of European integration.

The results of the ECF's Reflection Group on the Balkans will be presented to European policymakers, foundation representatives, and artists. The Reflection Group explores the roles that the arts and culture have played in the fall of the Yugoslavian and Albanian regimes and their potential as factors in reconciliation, development, and European integration. The Balkan event will discuss political and practical measures based on recent findings and launch a new funding-line to support cultural cooperation in the region.

For more information on the event and the Balkan Reflection Group please contact Isabelle Schwarz and Bertan Selim.
