To celebrate UNESCO World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development, the Centre for Culture and the Creative Industries at City, University of London is curating a series of free events, from masterclasses to screenings.

From Senegal to Singapore: creative spaces in a globalised world

The series of events gathers a range of international experts from across the fields of culture and creative industries to showcase and share their experiences of developing spaces for arts and creativity in their countries.

Bringing together experts and the public, these events will be reflective and interactive spaces to explore and exchange ideas on areas such as culture, policy and management.

Those with an interest in how creative spaces are being carved out in a globalised world will find these events offer a great chance to hear stories from all around the world, as well as network and gather with peers.

The series begins on Wednesday 8th May and runs until Tuesday 4th June. Events will take place at City, University of London and Queen Mary University of London.
