On 1 November 2019, the 3rd edition of Art Camp Andorra was held in Malta, supported by Hedva Ser as patron and UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador and Special Envoy for Cultural Diplomacy.

In addition to Ms Ser, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Mr Carmelo Abela, and 20 artists from the Mediterranean attended the event.

These sessions were first set up by the Andorran National Commission for UNESCO in 2008 and are internationally renowned. They bring together artists to discuss crucial issues in our society, such as cultural diversity, social inclusion and gender equality, which all lie at the heart of UNESCO’s programmes and priorities. 

This time in Malta, Art Camp Andorra took a new step towards the international recognition of cultural diplomacy.

At the press conference of this event, the Minister of Foreign Affairs stated that: “cultural diplomacy can be utilised as an innovative tool by other countries to promote tolerance and understanding across nations.”

Cultural diplomacy aims to encourage the exchange of views, promote knowledge of other cultures, and build bridges between communities. Guided by this belief, UNESCO works to build a more peaceful world through the promotion of intercultural dialogue and exchange.
