On Wednesday April 25, at 18:30 pm at the A.G. Leventis Gallery in Nicosia, the Cultural Services of the Ministry of Education and Culture and the Cyprus National Commission for UNESCO are co-organising an event on the topic of “Cultural Expressions and Pluralism: Aspects of Contemporary Creativity in Cyprus”, in the context of the UNESCO Convention for the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions (2005).

The event will include a presentation on the context of contemporary cultural policy in Cyprus, the launch of the publication Cultural Expressions and Pluralism: Aspects of contemporary creativity in Cyprus, which includes civil society best practices in Cyprus for the promotion of the objectives of the 2005 Convention and a speech by a UNESCO representative entitled “Reshaping Cultural Policies through the UNESCO 2005 Convention: Challenges and Opportunities for member states and civil society”.

The UNESCO Convention for the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions (2005) is a legally binding international Agreement safeguarding that creators, cultural professionals and citizens have the right to create and enjoy a broad spectrum of cultural goods, services and activities.  It proposes an international framework for the governance and management of culture which ensures public access to various cultural expressions and integrates culture in the national sustainable development policies, thus maximising the overall contribution of creative industries to economic and social development. 

The opening address will be delivered by His Excellency the Minister of Education and Culture, Dr Kostas Champiaouris.  The event will be concluded with a guided tour of the exhibition ‘Agonies - Diamantis’ by Dr Eleni S. Nikita, Curator of the Cyprus Collection of the A. G. Leventis Gallery.
