newsletter The recent disaster caused by Brexit brings to mind that old emphatic line about relations between Europe and the United Kingdom: Storm in Channel. Continent cut off. Because ultimately, and as in any divorce case, responsibilities are shared and inevitably one has to think about what each side did wrong. In this regard, it would appear that this is not the European Union's finest hour. Its management of refugees has highlighted insurmountable differences over the past few months. And now that, because of the United Kingdom's departure, many legitimate voices are underlining the need to re-establish the European Union and seek to reinvent it politically, perhaps it is worth doing so, as Jean Monnet apparently said, starting this time with culture.

The reflection is relevant in light of the recent communication by the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Federica Mogherini, entitled Towards an EU strategy for international cultural relations, and endorsed by the European Commission, Parliament and Council. All things considered, it is worth taking a look at this document, which puts forward a three-fold action plan with a view to advancing cultural relations with European Union partner countries: supporting culture as an engine for sustainable social and economic development, promoting culture and intercultural dialogue for peaceful inter-community relations, and reinforcing cooperation on cultural heritage, all of which is in line with the UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and gives local governments a leading role, among other things.

Many of those who, over the past years, have been extremely critical of the way in which, behind closed doors, the European Union has positioned culture in the framework of its policies, believing that the European Agenda for Culture (2007) and the Creative Europe programme (2013) could have gone much further, welcome this new strategy for culture in foreign relations, as it opens up new possibilities that are worthy of consideration, starting, perhaps this time, with culture.

newsletter Culture and Arts supporting social cohesion in Latin American Cities - LAIC newsletter
newsletter
newsletter interarts On 22 June, Interarts and BOZAR launched the first expert seminar of Culture and arts supporting social cohesion in Latin American cities - LAIC, a project funded by the European Commission and running until July 2017. Followed by a public debate, the seminar brought together more than 20 researchers, cultural managers, cultural directors and architects from Latin America and Europe, offering an opportunity to make comparisons between contexts whilst also highlighting contemporary challenges related to cities, cultural cooperation and the identification of best practices in both continents. For the latter, Medellin in Colombia is often quoted as a new model for urban development and culture, in spite of a complicated past, proving that the relation between cities and culture remains a key challenge for numerous decision-makers, artists and cultural operators across the globe. The LAIC project aims at facilitating exchange and joint action and supporting peer learning on the linkages between culture and development for Latin American artists and cultural operators, as well as triggering joint dialogue with their European counterparts. The project should create opportunities for Latin American creators, especially those from Lima (Peru), San Salvador (El Salvador), Curitiba (Brazil), Medellin (Colombia) and Puebla (Mexico), to work and implement projects in the field of culture and urban social cohesion. The next activity will be a workshop organised in Medellin later this year. In 2017, an exhibition at BOZAR will showcase several arts-driven initiatives in Latin America focusing on social cohesion and urban development. newsletter
