Cultural diplomacy in practice

(Berlin, 22nd – 25th of March, 2012)

The Institute for Cultural Diplomacy plays a leading role in the field of intercultural exchange and understanding. The ICD is an international, nonprofit organization based in Berlin, whose latest project is The Arts Diplomacy Festival, which promotes the idea that Cultural Diplomacy must go beyond mere discussion and include the practical implementation of theory, because we believe that ‘actions speak louder than words!’

The Festival is taking place in Berlin from the 22nd until the 25th of March 2012. It will consists of lectures, panel discussions and workshops. There will also be exhibitions and performances which will blend theory and practice of cultural diplomacy. The fetival will feature leading figures from the world of political, academic and the Arts. The festival presents a unique opportunity for artists ,academics and poiticians to present their ideas and demonstrate the potential of practical cultural diplomacy to establish intercultural dialogue and improvement diplomatic relations at the global level. Participants will be invited to participate in discussions, workshops, and an essay contest with the prize of an opportunity to present the paper to a select comitte of world leaders.

The Arts represent a medium through which it is possible to understand and interpret cultural history and identity of a nation, and is as such essential in shaping the nature of intercultural relations. Anyone can participate in creating and enjoying the Arts, it is a powerful tool for intercultural communication which should be exploited in the filed of cultural diplomacy. The festival aims to explore various art forms, ranging from music, literature, dance, and theater to film, and their use in cultural diplomacy to promote social cohesion.

The event sheds light on the importance of the Arts in cultural diplomacy and how it can initiate intercultural dialogue and cooperation through movement, thought and active expression. We hope you can Join us!

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
