CUG and the Welcome Office of Tor Vergata University launch a call to celebrate diversity
Also this year Tor Vergata University of Rome has decided to celebrate the World Day for Cultural Diversity with an event that will involve the whole student community.
In 2001, UNESCO adopted the Universal Declaration on Cultural Diversity and in December 2002, the UN General Assembly, in its resolution 57/249, declared May 21 to be the World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development, affirming culture’s contribution to the three dimensions of sustainable development, acknowledging further the natural and cultural diversity of the world, and recognizing that cultures and civilizations can contribute to, and are crucial enablers of, sustainable development.
CUG Office (Single Guarantee Committee) and the Welcome Office of Tor Vergata University of Rome, in order to celebrate this valuable and important day properly, are proposing to realize an online project. But we need your collaboration to make this beautiful day enjoyable while appreciating the cultural diversity surrounding us.
We would like to invite Tor Vergata students to propose an artist or an important artwork from their land of origin, one that they can introduce on May 21st through a personal interview to the artist or to a person strictly connected to the artwork; the interviews and the artistic elements will be presented in a virtual event on May 21st .
This event would be an opportunity for all of us to appreciate all the colors of cultural diversity in unique personal stories/experiences. The format and the schedule of the event will be furtherly defined according to the number and kind of proposals received
Kinds of cultural elements and creative arts fields The person to be interviewed has to be directly connected to the artwork (ie, the director or a keeper in a museum) or a publicly recognized artist in creative fields, such as: painting, architecture, sculpture, literature, music, performing and cinema. Hybrid and/or other artistic fields not mentioned in this list will also be welcome.
To propose an artist or an artwork and the person directly connected to it send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org , specifying your name, the name of the artist /artwork and the State or Region of reference of the artist /artwork.
