Documentos Islands as Crossroads - Sustaining Cultural Diversity in Small Island Developing States (en inglés)

The very notion of a ‘small island’ usually triggers several associations in the minds of continental dwellers. Remote, isolated, insular, even paradisiacal, are some of the more common imaginings about islands. Yet small island states and their populations are far from isolated or culturally homogenous. On the contrary, islands have long been places where peoples of different cultures have encountered each other and lived in close proximity. Islands are better understood as dynamic centres of cultural interaction – as ‘crossroads of cultures’.

The inclusion of the concept of cultural identity in global cultural policies was strongly recommended on the occasion of the World Conference on Cultural Policies (1982), which stated that "the equality and dignity of all cultures must be recognized, as must the right of each people and community to affirm and preserve its cultural identity and have it respected by others".

Documentos Proceedings of the Symposium "Funding Culture, Managing the Risk"

On 16 and 17 April 2010, UNESCO brought together leading experts from the financial, development, academic and cultural sectors for a symposium on "Funding Culture, Managing the Risk" to develop innovative strategies and approaches to improving funding and financing opportunities for culture in developing countries.

The two-day symposium, supported by the Government of Spain and held at the Orga-nization’s headquarters, was part of a series of events organized by UNESCO’s Culture Sector aiming to catalyse new ideas and international action around the culture and development agenda.

Culture is a proven effective driver of development, with great potential and impact for the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals; with only five years before the deadline for their achievement, 2010 offers the international community critical oppor-tunities to place the role of culture more centrally in development practices and policies.

This volume reunites the presentations from leading experts and practitioners in the field and captures the dynamic exchanges of ideas and experiences. Included are the key messages of the symposium and the lead-up event, a global online discussion, as well as proposals on the way forward for the culture and development agenda.

Documentos DVD Rutas del esclavo: una visión mundial

El DVD saca a luz la presencia africana de un continente a otro, las importantes contribuciones de la diáspora africana en diferentes ámbitos (artes, religiones, conocimientos, agricultura, comportamiento, lingüística, etc.) a las sociedades a las cuales han llegado. Claro, no se oculta el racismo y las discriminaciones heredadas de ese pasado doloroso. Más allá del traumatismo de la esclavitud, este film pretende ilustrar cómo la resistencia y la resiliencia de las víctimas han permitido sobrevivir a este sistema deshumanizante.

    Documentos The Power of Culture for Development (Folleto en inglés)
    Culture, in all its dimensions, is a fundamental component of sustainable development. As a sector of activity, through tangible and intangible heritage, creative industries and various forms of artistic expressions, culture is a powerful contributor to economic development, social stability and environmental protection.

    As a repository of knowledge, meanings and values that permeate all aspects of our lives, culture also defines the way human beings live and interact both at local and global scales.

    Documentos MUSEUM International N°244: What Can Art Still Do? (periodical)

    ‘‘Art will save the world’’. One hundred and fifty years after Dostoyevsky’s triumphant declaration, UNESCO asked, with a touch of scepticism, ‘‘What power does Art still have?’’

    Between the mid 19th century and the start of the 21st, then, it seems that doubt has crept in concerning the power of Art in human destiny. It is true that, in the meantime, the world has undergone profound upheaval, and its intellectual, political and cultural foundations have been shaken by colonisation, totalitarianism and national and international conflicts. The history of the last century, then, has done much to endanger the force of Art. So we were justified in asking the question.


    Documentos Handling of Collections in Storage

    A museum’s storage area is a vital part of any museum and generally contains the larger part of the collection. It also plays an essential role in the development of a museum and its programmes as it is closely linked with other activities, such as research, consultation, exhibitions, conservation and loans.

    The storage area guarantees the preservation of and accessibility to the collection, and as a result the proper care and management of collections in storage is an important challenge for museums if they are to maintain their roles as centres of knowledge, research and inspiration.

    Documentos Simposio sobre Cultura y desarrollo: ¿una respuesta a los desafíos del futuro?

    En el marco de la actual crisis mundial y de la búsqueda de soluciones innovadoras, en unos tiempos en que, según ciertos estudios preliminares, el sector cultural no ha resultado muy afectado por la crisis, la UNESCO ha querido aprovechar la ocasión que le ofrecía su 35ª Conferencia General, en octubre de 2009, para situar una vez más la cultura en el centro de las reflexiones sobre el desarrollo.

    En ese mismo contexto se enmarcaba el Simposio “Cultura y desarrollo: ¿una respuesta a los desafíos del futuro?”, organizado en Sciences Po el 10 de octubre de 2009 con el apoyo del Gobierno del Reino de España, con el propósito de reactivar el debate intelectual sobre el componente “cultura”, una de las nuevas claves para un desarrollo sostenible y más equitativo. Hemos considerado particularmente oportuno subrayar la capacidad de renovación permanente que proporciona la cultura, gracias a la creatividad de las personas, de los pueblos y de las sociedades,y la capacidad de configurar modelos de desarrollo alternativos arraigados en la riqueza de la diversidad cultural propia de cada país.
