Of paramount importance in a shrinking world is the advancing of purposeful cultural — and indeed political — relations.
Consul-General Pierre-Alain Coffinier (France) and Dr Kim Minke (Director, Danish Cultural Institute) discuss the working of a new feasibility study at the University of Edinburgh. The study focuses on the establishment of a centre of expertise in cultural relations and public diplomacy in Scotland.
This was a joint event organised by the National Library of Scotland and RSA Media, Creative Industries, Culture and Heritage Network.
