The Expert Meeting on the Music and Textile/Tissues themes of the Interactive Atlas of Cultural Interactions along the Silk Roads will be held from 12 to 13 September 2018 in Margilan, Uzbekistan.

This meeting of experts is organized by UNESCO in close collaboration with the government of Uzbekistan. Renowned international and Uzbek experts will attend this meeting in order to discuss concrete cultural elements that have been exchanged in the field of Music and Tissue and Textile production between different regions and cultures along the Silk Roads.

While the current context of globalization is faced with mistrusts and conflicts, the Silk Roads offer an instructive example of a long-lasting legacy of exchanges, dialogue and cooperation – a potential basis for sustainable peace and development.

Through the development of the Interactive Atlas of Cultural Interactions along the Silk Roads, UNESCO aims to highlight the rich history and common heritage that flourished along the Silk Roads.

The official opening of the Atlas Bayrami Festival in Margilan, to be held on 14 September, will follow this expert meeting.
