The University of Jyväskylä will hold a conference entitled East-West Cultural Relations: Interplay of Arts and Cultural Diplomacy 1945-2017, which seeks to strengthen the research of cultural exchanges across national borders.

It explores and raises awareness of the state of cultural relations and diplomacy between Eastern and Western Europe. The conference aims to reflect on the East-West cultural connections from the Second World War to today. Its main focus is on artistic movements and exchanges between (and possibly within) the East and West.

February 24-25, 2017 at the University of Jyväskylä in Finland.

In the framework of Trauma & Revival, co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.

  • BOZAR makes you feel better

    After all the uncertainty of the last few months, we are pleased to welcome you back to BOZAR. We can’t do that with the programme we originally planned, but a modified offering that allows us to meet again in the safest of circumstances. To enable us to adapt as best we can to the changing circumstances and to welcome you back under the best conditions possible, we are still developing some of our programme. If you keep following us throughout the season, we will do our best to keep you up to date. Because there’s one thing you can be sure of in all this uncertainty: although we will have to host smaller audiences at the a time, the artistic quality will be undiminished!
