Open debate Women in Culture: Traditions and Innovations
20 September 2018
(with the support of the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation and the Government of St. Petersburg)

Culture is increasingly playing a key role as a driver of social development. Cultural globalization creates unique opportunities to enrich traditional values, ideas, and approaches to life. However, there is also the issue of preserving cultural diversity and the spiritual wealth that comes with it. How can this diversity be effectively leveraged to deepen cultural dialogue and interaction in the interests of sustainable development? What role can women play in preserving cultural diversity and developing the social role of culture? How does culture affect the quality of human capital?

Topics for discussion:
  • The role played by women in preserving cultural heritage.
  • Impediments to women fulfilling their professional potential in the cultural sector.
  • Priority areas of cultural cooperation for women’s organizations.
