08-06-2005 12:00 pm “Arab Woman between East and West” is the theme of a symposium to be held on June 8 and 9 at UNESCO. Its aim is to contribute to the recognition of the role of women in the culture and development of the Arab world, and to combat stereotyping. The symposium will bring together experts and political leaders, including Asma Khedr, Jordan’s Minister of Culture.
The symposium is organised by UNESCO’s Division of Cultural Policies and Intercultural Dialogue in co-operation with the Arab Group at UNESCO, within the framework of the Organization’s “Arabia Plan” and with the support of the Mohamed Bin Issa (MBI) Foundation.

The event will be opened at 9:30, June 8 (Room XI) by UNESCO Director-General Koïchiro Matsuura, Muhyi K. Alkateeb, Permanent Delegate of Iraq to UNESCO and President of the Arab Group, and Abdulrazzak Al-Nafisi, Kuwait's permanent deputy to UNESCO and President of the Consultative Committee for the “Arabia Plan”

The first two sessions on June 8 (10am -1pm and 3pm - 6pm), will consider the image of Arab women in western culture and in the Arab media. The third session, on June 9 (10am – 1pm), will examine the role of Arab women in shaping cultural policies.

An exhibition entitled “Creativity of Arab Women” will present the works of Arab women artists from June 6 to 10 in the Miró section of the building. It will be officially inaugurated on June 8 at 6pm.
