UNESCO World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development

Hi Everyone! Like radio?

The European Broadcasting Union’s (EBU) network of public radio music channels will mark UNESCO World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development on or around 21 May, with music and spoken word events that underline the importance of music and culture in promoting diversity as an agent of inclusion, prosperity and positive change.

Forty-five radio music channels across Europe, Canada, the US, Brazil, Australia and New Zealand will broadcast activities in support of the initiative. The musicians involved are recognized for their work in the field of cultural diversity and intercultural dialogue and have expressed their full support for this special public service mobilization. They include Catalan viol player and conductor, Jordi Savall; European composer and activist, Max Richter and his creative partner award-winning artist and filmmaker, Yulia Mahr; Egyptian soprano, Fatma Said; and composer and conductor, Tan Dun.
