Poster of the International Festival of Cultural Diversity 2010

The celebration of the World Day of Cultural Diversity is meant to underscore not only the intrinsic value of specific cultural productions, but also and above all the fertility of their diversity. Together, they remind us that humanity’s fundamental wealth lies in its diversity. By bringing out what is primordial to the human condition, art is a catalyst for the building of peace in the minds of men.


In the Framework of 2010, International Year of the Rapprochement of Cultures and the International Festival of Cultural Diversity (17-26 May) devoted to the World Day of Cultural Diversity many events are organized by UNESCO.
