Culture Ministers from around the world will gather in the world’s Festival City in August to debate the power and profile of culture in forging and fostering international relationships.
The first ever Edinburgh International Culture Summit will be hosted in the magnificent Scottish Parliament building in Edinburgh on 13 and 14 August, after the Closing Ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games in London and in the midst of the unrivalled explosion of cultural energy at Edinburgh’s Festivals.
The Summit is a collaboration between the Scottish Government, the UK Government, the British Council and the Edinburgh International Festival. It brings together Culture Ministers with prominent artists, thinkers and others involved in developing and implementing cultural policy.
It is planned to webcast the plenary sessions of the Summit.
